Teaching Assistants and H1N1
* This message is from the Faculty of Graduate Studies *
To all graduate students,
If a teaching assistant has flu or flu-like symptoms, s/he should stay at home. No pay will be deducted for time off sick. Normally, upon return a TA will be required to meet the responsibilities of the position as defined in the TA job responsibilities form. Exceptional circumstances may result in a review of this requirement.
TAs should encourage the students they teach to take appropriate steps to stay healthy (handwashing, covering coughs) and to go home when sick.
