Event and Holiday Guidelines


Working From Home - Video Communication Tools - Tips and Tricks  
We know that working remotely can be challenging, learning new technology and staying connected while apart is something we are all going through. The Mature Workforce Committee invites you to join members of the UMass Medical School IT Team for an informal discussion centered on helpful tips and tricks you can use to overcome these obstacles.
Time: Noon-1PM
Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2021  

Check-In and Chat
Everyone is welcome to join the Mature Workforce committee for the second Check-In and Chat.  We all know the challenges of the remote work environment – technology, loss of social interaction and networking experiences, and the stress of being ‘inside.’ Let’s get together and chat – suggest coping strategies,  share common experiences and hear from each other what helps!
Time Noon – 1:00 PM
Date Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Interfaith Observances Planning Calendar

Interfaith Observances Planning Calendar.pdf UMMHC and UMMS respect religious differences and acknowledge that genuine conflict may exist between an observance and scheduled meetings and events.  State and federal law require that we make reasonable accommodation to the religious needs of employees. The law also allows that such accommodations honor the primacy of our commitment to patient care and business needs, and not unduly burden other employees or disproportionately affect the religious observer.  This Interfaith Observer Planning Calendar lists major religious holidays, but does not include all religious holidays observed by every faith. It is intended to encourage consideration of these days of observance when scheduling meetings and events.

Please see the PDF of interfaith observances for inclusive planning purposes.

For further information on other religious holidays observed by our employees and patients, please consult the Interfaith Calendar website.
