Employees

HSC understands that some team members may still be facing challenges in their personal lives caused by storm damage. We ask that supervisors be understanding and flexible with work hours and locations for those impacted. If supervisors have any questions regarding remote/flexible work arrangements, please contact Human Resources.

Employees should notify their supervisors immediately if their ability to work is affected. Please note resources are available through the Employee Assistance Program to those in need.

Furthermore, employees received an email Friday from the UNT System detailing time-reporting instructions for the campus closure. If you have any additional questions regarding the entry of time for this leave period, please contact Time and Labor at 940-369-5500 or timeandlabor@untsystem.edu.
