The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) enables all CUNY employees to request paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. Under the Act, full time-employees are eligible for two weeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave at 100 percent of a full-time employee's pay. Part-time employees may request leave for their average number of work hours in a two-week period. In addition, employees can request two weeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave at two-thirds the employee’s regular rate of pay because the employee is unable to work to care for a child (under 18 years of age) whose school or child care provider is closed or unavailable for reasons related to COVID-19, and an additional 10 weeks of paid expanded family and medical leave at two-thirds the employee’s regular rate of pay. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. Learn More

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act)
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires colleges and universities to publish an annual security report. The report contains information regarding campus security including such topics as: emergency procedures, crime prevention, university law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, sexual assault prevention, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security on campus. It also contains crime statistics for the previous three calendar years. The Graduate Center can comply with the law by using a web site instead of paper documents so long as the exact web address where the report can be accessed is published. The report can be found here. If you would like to receive a hard copy of the Annual Security Report, please call the Office of Public Safety at (212) 817-7761.
