Have there been changes to employee vacation policies? Do I need to use up vacation hours now? (Added 5/8/20)
Body

WPI has not made any changes to its vacation time policy. However, we always encourage employees to take their available vacation time; even if the COVID-19 pandemic has put limits on our typical vacation travels and activities, it’s important to disconnect from work. Please refer to the WPI Employee Benefits & Policies Manual for all official university policies or email any specific questions to talent@wpi.edu
