  2. If it is determined that work can be performed remotely, then the supervisor and employee complete a Remote Working Agreement.

  3. The supervisor uploads and routes the Remote Working Agreement for signatures in DocuSign. The supervisor should list the appropriate Employee & Labor Relations Officer as indicated on the Remote Working Agreement signing order must be set up as follows:
    1. Employee and Labor Relations
