If you have not been designated as essential, please note NYSIF offices, facilities, and operations in New York City and on Long Island will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 2, 2012. At this time, all remaining NYSIF offices are open. Please use your best judgment about travel to work depending upon the conditions in your area and guidance from local officials. In addition, NYSIF is attempting to contact all employees in the New York City, Melville, Hempstead and White Plains offices to confirm their safety following the recent hurricane emergency. Direct phone calls are being made by NYSIF staff, and we are also using information from business managers, department heads, supervisors and co-workers who have spoken to fellow employees. We are using the contact information included in NYSIF’s Employee Information System, but if these numbers are not functioning or you are away from your residence NYSIF may not be able to reach you. If you have not been contacted, please call NYSIF at (518) 437-5220 to provide confirmation of your well-being. If you have already been contacted by NYSIF staff conducting this outreach, it is not necessary to call. NYSIF will continue use the New York Alert system to provide updates to employees using the phone numbers provided in the Employee Information System (EIS). If you have not received these messages for any reason, please call one of the Employee Hotline numbers listed on the back of your NYSIF ID. Customers: Please note that due to Hurricane Sandy, NYSIF offices, facilities, and operations in New York City and on Long Island will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 2, 2012.
