Telecommuting arrangements are permitted when approved by the employee and their immediate supervisor with notice of the agreement provided to the appropriate Vice Chancellor/Vice President or designee; when it is feasible that an employee could fulfill their job duties from an alternate location for the period covered by the arrangement; and when the telecommuting arrangement does not disrupt the operations of the UW System.
- This policy establishes the framework for the creation of telecommuting agreements between an employee and their immediate supervisor, including details related to:
- Duration and form of the telecommuting agreement;
- Limitations; and
Effective May 17, 2021
