Special Vaccine Time Off

Under a new state law you are entitled to up to four hours off from work if you are getting the COVID-19 vaccination shot during the work day. You are entitled to this time off for each shot you get.

This time off does not count against your sick time, vacation, makeup or personal days when you take it.

Human Resources Director Ruth Fantasia confirmed during a meeting Friday March 26 that employees are entitled to this time off. Fantasia said managers have been notified about this special time off.

If you run into any difficulties contact the Guild office at office@albanyguild.org or contact a member of the Executive Board or your shop steward.
