Telecommuting Agreement

Introduction

Department heads may approve telecommuting arrangements as an alternative work arrangement for individual employees where it is in the best interest of the University and the employee. The arrangements should be assessed prior to approval to ensure that operational needs and impact are taken into account. The following guidelines are outlined to help managers, supervisors and employees develop telecommuting arrangements that are equitable, clearly understood by all parties and ensure minimal disruption to the organization. Managers, supervisors and employees are expected to follow these principles in establishing and approving telecommuting arrangements.

Note: Telecommuting is an optional arrangement set up by individual departments. This option may not be available at every department. Please speak to your department head prior to submitting any telecommuting agreement form.

Definition

Telecommuting is a work arrangement in which an employee regularly performs work at an alternative or an off-campus site for a specified portion of the workweek. (Field stations or sub locations are established permanent work sites for groups of employees within a department and are not considered telecommuting locations.) Occasional or temporary work off-site, including for example work while traveling on University business or remote monitoring of IT systems, does not constitute telecommuting and does not require the formal arrangement described in these guidelines.
