-Mountain Valley Child and Family Services Employees
Why is this important?
Employees continue to work at the risk of their own health during a global pandemic in an environment that does not follow social distancing protocol and has a rotation of staff from several surrounding counties that come and leave the facility as frequently as daily. This leaves clients and employees in a vulnerable position as Covid-19 is very contagious and potentially deadly. Employees of Mountain Valley Child and Family Services are asking that the following requests be reviewed and considered as compensation for the risk they are posing to their own health for the benefit of a company that was built on the foundation of Welfare, Safety, Security, and Care for All. MVCFS providing employees with compensation for their extra work and exposure to COVID-19 also provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.
