This document applies specifically to the State of Alaska Executive Branch agencies. In the event of a pandemic flu outbreak it may be necessary to implement 'social distancing.' As a result, some employees may be directed not to report to work or to work from home. Others may be assigned to a work unit and duties that vary from their normal assignment due to the illness of other employees or employees' family members. This document answers questions about who has authority to direct employees not to report to work, and how salary and benefits are distributed. It also answers questions about working from home, and whether an employee is paid at a different salary range if he/she is delegated the authority to act in a higher range. It also answers questions about childcare when schools and/or daycare centers are closed.
