UNC Pembroke will officially remain open; however, many non-mandatory operations may be substantially reduced.

Non-mandatory employees have the option to report late, leave early, or not work at all based on their own personal circumstances. However, employees are responsible for informing their supervisors in a timely manner of all such decisions. Employees must code available leave for any work time missed during a Condition 1 status, unless their supervisor authorizes off-site work (e.g., teleworking) or the Governor issues an Executive Order permitting leave with pay for any missed time. 

Mandatory employees will be required to report to work if specifically directed by their supervisor.

Otherwise, mandatory employees will follow the same guidelines as their non-mandatory colleagues.

Employees can refer to the Adverse Weather Policy for additional information.
