Flexible Work Arrangements Policy and Guidance

The university recognizes that work-related needs can vary across campus. This policy provides guidance for creating flexibility for individual officers of administration and classified employee work arrangements and establishes structure for employees and their units to explore flexible work arrangements that meet the needs of both the employee and the university.

Key Elements:

  • When consistent with operational needs and other eligibility considerations (see Flexible Work Arrangements Guidance), the university supports flexible work arrangements.
  • Flexible work arrangements are based on the specific needs of the unit at that particular time and the ability of the individual employee to work effectively in a flexible work arrangement.
  • Employee-requested flexible arrangements are a privilege, not an expectation of employment.
  • Flexible work arrangements are not appropriate for all positions, times of year, or campus settings. The university is an organization with work environments that vary widely and require specific staffing to function effectively.
  • Employees with flexible work arrangements remain subject to applicable university policies and procedures, collective bargaining agreements, and federal and state laws.

Types of Flexible Work Arrangements:

  • Flexible schedule
  • Compressed work week
  • Remote Work (Telecommuting)
  • Reduced work week (part-time)/reduced work year
  • job sharing
