COVID-19

School Bus Questions

My school district is closed, and now they are refusing to pay employees and contractors. Are they allowed to withhold these payments?

  • If a school district or university in the U.S. has accepted CARES Act funds, they must continue to pay their employees to the greatest extent possible, even during service disruptions. If your local has school/university units where service has been affected by COVID-19, demand that the employer continue to pay your members throughout the disruption.
