Emergency Labor Pool

In the event of a declared emergency the Emergency Labor Pool (ELP) may be activated by the university’s senior administrator on call (SAOC). The university created the ELP as part of its emergency response planning. In the event of a declared emergency, the ELP will allow the university to reassign existing employees to ensure that essential functions are carried out. 

Employees must talk with their supervisors before registering. Supervisors have to decide whether your work time during an emergency is best utilized within your current department or whether all or some of your work time can be made available to the ELP. Once an employee has his or her supervisor’s approval, he or she may register here. The system is NetID enabled so supervisors will receive email notifications when employees register and or are referred to another department in the event of an ELP activation. For more information, please refer to the ELP FAQ webpage.
