Telecommuting refers to working arrangements that permit people to do at least some of their regular work from home rather than attending at the office. The Focus on People framework outlines our need to promote flexible work arrangements as it relates to creating a healthy, sustainable workplaces. Sustainability committees and the University Community Plan identify the benefits of telecommuting to the environment.
Furthermore, some departments have already implemented verbal agreements for telecommuting and have identified the need for the university to provide consistent guidelines.
Telecommuting guidelines were established for Management & Professional (M&P) staff in 2009. Please reference the materials below for more information.
The University is considering the possibility of telecommuting for other employee groups. Please contact your HR representative for more information.
