NEW YORK MEMBERS -Important *Power of Attorney Information* If you are unable to act due to a serious health condition, it is extremely important that your spouse, significant other or dependent has access to your completed Power of Attorney form to act on your behalf related to the retirement system.
You should advise the individual designated to contact UPSEU immediately if you become or they believe you may become incapacitated as it will potentially impact pension rights afforded to them.
This would in no way impact any decision if you become capable of acting on your own behalf and for you to reverse any decision made. Again, it is extremely important that your loved ones have access to your executed Power of Attorney. You do not submit to anyone. It is retained with your important papers.
What to do if you are involved in a splashing incident
Make a logbook entry and notify your area supervisor immediately.
Request to be relieved from your post and to be evaluated by medical staff.
Follow the advice given by medical staff and follow up with your private physician.
If you are medically able, fill out all relevant paperwork, including:
Workers compensation papers and any required reports
(i.e. infraction, use of force, unusual incident, etc. YOU SHOULD STATE IN THE PAPERWORK THAT YOU WERE SPLASHED WITH WHAT APPEARED TO BE THE CONTENTS OF THE TOILET BOWL OR TOILET BOWL WATER! This is important in re-arresting the inmate.
Keep copies of all paperwork submitted for future reference.
Bag and label articles of clothing submitted for testing (i.e. uniform shirt, uniform parts, t-shirt, etc.) Any of these items can be submitted for testing. Submitting your uniform is not a requirement. This procedure is ecessary in the re-arrest and prosecution of the inmate involved. You will be reimbursed for any item that you submit for testing.
