Due to the current COVID-19 (Corona virus) outbreak, Children's Fund has implemented temporary, remote work arrangements for employees whose job duties are conducive to working from home. However, Children's Fund's positions require the employee to be physically present in the workplace, following a modified work schedule.  All employees are defined as essential personnel.  These arrangements are expected to be short-term, and Children's Fund will continue to monitor guidance from health officials and the need for remote work arrangements.  Employees should not assume any specific period for tele-work, and Children's Fund may require employees to return to regular, in-office work.
