SUNY Plattsburgh
Children in the Workplace

Approved by Executive Council on 8/27/04
Revised September 14, 2009

Many members of the Plattsburgh State community, in addition to their workplace obligations
have young children for whom they are primarily responsible.

We recognize that, in spite of best efforts, it is sometimes impossible to secure adequate
childcare, particularly for school-aged children when local primary schools are not in session.
It may therefore be irregularly and unavoidably necessary for employees to bring their children
to campus and into the classroom, which would be more of a disservice to the students and
the college than the presence of a child.

Therefore, in addition to special programs such as Take Your Child to Work Day, children may,
infrequently and irregularly, be in the workplace.  In such cases, the employee should notify their
immediate supervisor of the presence of the child.  In these cases, the parent must be aware that
he or she assumes full responsibility for both the well being of the child and the adequate completion
of his or her professional duties.
