Financial continuity: new guidelines
After first handling the flow of salary payments and then supplier invoices, the Finance Department opens the way for the processing of other types of financial transactions such as the management of expense reports, claims, openings of funds, financial reports for research funds, etc.
Detailed explanations have been communicated to those with financial responsibility, including the administrative heads of faculties and services. Please forward your accounting documents to your respective administrative officers, who will then transfer them to the Financial Service.
For any further information or for the processing of any other emergency, please contact email@example.com. You can also contact the Head of the Finance Department directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Terms and conditions for apprentices
Like all UNIL employees, apprentices are asked to stay away from the campus and, as far as possible, to telework. In any case, they remain at home at the disposal of their employer, except on the usual course days, which are dedicated to following the distance learning courses set up by the vocational schools.
It is essential that trainers maintain regular contact with their apprentices. UNIL recommends agreeing on periodic distance learning interviews (e.g. once a day or twice a week depending on the needs). If you have any questions, you can contact the Human Resources Department by e-mail (email@example.com) or telephone (021 692 45 11).
Ergonomics at work
Eye fatigue, back pain, poor blood circulation... These physical discomforts can occur when you have an unsuitable work space. In order to prevent these problems, a second series resources dedicated to telework has been set up. You will find relevant advice on how to create an ergonomic space that preserves your posture and eyes, and tips on how to plan breaks during the day.
For those who do not have access to this content, all the recommendations will be posted on www.unil.ch/coronavirus/work/remote in a PDF format.
