A formal Flexible Work arrangement is negotiated in advance, initiated through the Flexible Work policies and procedures, documented using the approved forms, and is reviewed and assessed after 90 days. Additionally, if the Flexible Work Agreement is approved to continue after the 90-day trial, the agreement is renewed at least annually. Individual departments can administer their own policies on Flexible Work, but they should be reviewed by Human Resources & Payroll and must meet the minimum stipulations outlined in the university policy.

An informal Flexible Work arrangement is ideally discussed in advance and worked out between the department, the supervisor, and the employee on an as-needed basis. Informal Flexible Work arrangements are, by their very nature, temporary and of limited duration.

An infrequent Telework arrangement can be formalized by selecting the “Emergency or Intermittent Telework” option on the Flexible Work Agreement.
