Employee Vaccination Portal

Dear University of La Verne employees,

Our plans for a full return to campus by the fall of 2021 prioritize the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff, while also honoring our historical commitment to a student-centered and personalized education.

These plans include an expectation for an experience that is as close as possible to before the pandemic, including the resumption of a full schedule of face-to-face course offerings and fully-opened facilities, in compliance with state and local safety and social distancing guidelines.

In order to facilitate this full and safe return, the University of La Verne will require that all students, faculty, including adjunct faculty, and all staff, be vaccinated against COVID-19, with exemptions for those who request them for medical, religious, Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), or personal reasons.

This policy is consistent with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College Health Association, and state and local public health agencies, and has been approved by the Board of Trustees.

Submitting Documentation

The university is providing a secure and confidential web-based portal for employees to submit proof of vaccination or to request an exemption.

That can be found in the HR Portal or at laverne.edu/health/vaccine-information

If you plan to be on any university of La Verne campus prior to the start of the fall term, please submit confirmation of your COVID-19 vaccination or a request for the exemption no later than Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

Exemptions

The Office of Human Resources will review employee requests for exemptions for medical, religious, ADA, or personal reasons.

Employees who receive an exemption may be subject to regular COVID-19 testing, daily symptom checks, quarantines, additional COVID-19 training, or other preventative measures necessary to protect the health and well-being of the community.

Employee COVID-19 Remote Work Accommodations

An employee’s approved medical, religious, ADA, or personal exemption to the university’s COVID-19 vaccination policy does not provide an employee with the right to work remotely. All COVID-19 remote work accommodations must be approved by the Office of Human Resources and the employee’s manager.

Getting Vaccinated

If you are not yet vaccinated, please get vaccinated as soon as possible, or as you are advised by your health care provider. COVID-19 vaccines are now widely available in California and most other states at no cost. California maintains a listing of vaccine sites online.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has information about the effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

Questions about this policy can be directed to the Office of Human Resources at  lavernehr@laverne.edu. Please also continue to visit laverne.edu/coronavirusfor updated information.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our university community safe.

 

Sincerely,

The Office of Human Resources
