COVID-19 Shutdown: Resources for Employees

Calhoun County Offices Close to Mitigate Spread of COVID-19

Read the press release
Calhoun County Employees, please see helpful information below regarding closure of offices during this time.
Please speak with your supervisor if you have questions. 

Regarding payroll:

During the shutdown, the payroll department will process each pay period on the normal schedule. The County will be paying employees at their normally scheduled base pay if they are not working.

Any employee that will not be working during the public shutdown will need to enter any time worked for Friday March 13 and Monday March 16. All other time will be handled by the payroll department.

Employees who are working during the public shutdown will need to enter time actually worked.

Employees not working will not need to do anything.

Any employees currently receiving a paper check will have the check mailed to their home address.

All employee change forms such as W4’s need to be either faxed or emailed.

Accounts payable will be processed on the normal schedule.

If you have any special concerns or requests, please don’t hesitate to contact Carl @0969 for payroll related questions or Tina @0916 for accounts payable related questions.

Regarding Human Resources:
The Human Resources offices in both Marshall and Battle Creek will be closed for face-to-face meetings with employees, but all other services will continue as normal.  Due to the building closures for the public, interviews for open vacancies will need to be delayed, but we can still post positions during this period.  We ask that employees e-mail the HR staff and/or call their individual work stations directly versus using the main HR line that will be needed for the public.  Also, please remember that the HelpNet Employee Assistance Program remains available to all employees by calling 800-969-6162.

Regarding administrative services:
Building maintenance staff will be onsite and providing essential building services for all County buildings. Cleaning contracts will continue, shifting focus from routine cleaning to sanitation, especially in public areas.

Phone and copy services will be limited to critical-only requests. Mail will continue as normal.

Regarding communications:
Any changes that need to be made to the website during this time period can be sent to Lucy Blair,
