Telecommuting Policy

Telecommuting Policy for Staff Employees

Telecommuting/remote work, when in the best interest of the University, may be a viable work arrangement in cases where the individual employee, the job, and the supervisor are all well suited to such an arrangement. Flexible work arrangements and staggered shifts can be utilized in conjunction with or as an alternative to telecommuting/remote work.

Departments are urged to carefully review both the advantages and the disadvantages before entering into a new telecommuting/remote work agreement. Departments that currently have telecommuting/remote work agreements in place are encouraged to review the policy and guidelines before renewing those arrangements, to ensure consistency of application and equitable treatment throughout the department.

Here are some links to the policy and additional guidance to help you create a telecommuting/remote work arrangement:
