Office Relocation -- The Johns Hopkins Medicine Office of Technology Licensing is relocating its office from 2024 E. Monument St. to Suite 906, 111 Market Place (the Candler Building).

Electronic Time Record System -- The university has introduced an electronic time record system that is now the official time record of the university, replacing the paper Form 210. The new system, commonly referred to as "E210," is Web-based. The E210 can be accessed on the Web via the intranet, an internal network.

If you have not updated your time record using the Web, go to and select "online 210 form," located in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Enter the user name and password assigned last fall. Employees who need help recalling their user name and password should call 410-516-0247 or email . Once logged on, use "help" for instructions. Department administrators can also provide help.

For June (and all prior months during the current fiscal year), the E210 must be submitted by July 15. Beginning with July 1999, the E210 must be submitted and approved by the 20th of the following month. For example, the time record for July 1999 is due by Aug. 20.

Plans are under way to provide access to the E210 system via JHWorld. As changes are introduced, they will be communicated by the employee's department administrator. Information about these changes will also be published in the Administrative Bulletin, available on the Web at

Open Office Hours -- East Baltimore open office hours for vice president of human resources Audrey Smith have been canceled for Tues., June 8. The next East Baltimore open office hours will be July 13, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Family and Medical Leave -- Effective July 1, the university will adopt a "rolling" 12-month period for determining the amount of Family and Medical Leave available to eligible employees under the FML policy. This change will not affect any em-ployee's entitlement to family and medical leave, nor does it change the university's commitment to providing up to 12 weeks of leave in any 12-month period to eligible employees in the following situations and in accordance with the FML policy:

the birth of a child and to care for the new-born child during the first year following birth;

the placement of a child with the employee for adoption or foster care;

the employee needs to care for a family member (child, spouse or parent) with a serious health condition; and

the employee's own serious health condition makes the employee unable to perform at least one essential function of his or her job.

Use of a "rolling" 12-month period means that the university will look backward 12 months from the date the family and medical leave period is to begin to determine the amount of leave available to the employee. Under this method, each time an employee takes FML leave, the remaining leave entitlement would be any balance of the 12 weeks not used during the immediately preceding 12 months.

During the first year of implementing the rolling 12-month period, the university will look backward only to July 1, 1999, from the date the family and medical leave period is to begin to determine the amount of leave available to the employee.

For more information about the adoption of the "rolling" period or other FML issues, contact divisional human resources offices or human resources managers.
