Working Remotely

Pasadena City College is now physically closed to the public and nonessential personnel. Your supervisor will notify you if you have been designated as essential personnel and need to come to the college. All employees must remain at home until notified.

Employees whose duties cannot be performed remotely should be on call and available to perform other duties as needed. Please stay in touch with your supervisor to determine work-from-home activities. All other employees are expected to perform their regular job functions, to the extent possible, remotely. Employees who do not wish to work remotely may use compensatory or vacation leave, and must notify their managers accordingly.
