From June 18-August 12, 2017 it is strongly suggested that departments integrate some type of flexwork into their daily operations. An abbreviated, 1 page agreement is available here. Click here for FS@M flyer.


There are crucial steps that need to be taken before initiating or approving remote work situations, both domestic and international. Remote work creates significant implications to your work. If you are considering remote work, you must first consult with Human Resources and Payroll (hr@gmu.edu).  If your remote work location is considered a “hazardous travel area’, you must also consult with the University Travel Advisory Committee. Additionally, please remember that student workers are not eligible for remote work through Mason.
