Loyalist is permitting the removal of certain items from the college to support individuals working from home. If they need to take computer equipment home it flows through IT how prep the equipment for onsite pickup by the individual. We have also allowed folks to take home chairs if approved by our OH&S folks. They must come with someone to help get the chair into the vehicle and it is the individuals responsibility to get it outside. All items that are removed from the college are tracked, what, who and a copy of the approval (Must be Dean or Director level). Those that approve understand they are taking fiscal responsibility if the items are not returned or broken when off campus. It is their budgets that must cover any replacements.
We have not worried about precedent as we have forced folks to work remotely and have so
me obligation to reasonably support them. Some folks requests have been denied.
