This website is intended to help employees, supervisors, and department leaders understand the University’s approach to continued remote work in Fall 2021. Within this site, you will find help resources, forms, and additional information to assist you in determining if remote work is an appropriate arrangement as the University continues to resume operations.

  • A Remote Work Agreement is required to document a work arrangement in which an employee has been authorized to work remotely on a consistent, scheduled basis, either for part of their assigned hours (often referred to as “hybrid”) or entirely. Remote Work Agreements are intended for situations in which an employee is performing assigned duties that would normally be carried out on-campus or at a university worksite.
  • Remote Work Agreements are not required for occasional and intermittent worksite flexibility considered mutually beneficial between an employee and their supervisor.
  • Consistent with longstanding practice, academic faculty have flexibility to choose the location in which they do their work, aside from scheduled on-site classes, required on-site office hours, and required on-site staff meetings or other engagements. Academic faculty do not need a Remote Work Agreement to continue these usual work practices.
  • Remote Work Agreements are not required for approved leaves of absence, including sabbaticals.
