Eligibility to work remotely is determined based on job duties and essential functions of the job, satisfactory performance, and time with the university. Some positions require the employee to physically be on campus to perform essential job duties and to maintain continuity of operations, and therefore, may not be eligible for remote work. For more information and a list of roles that may not be eligible, see the “Eligibility” section in the Remote Working Arrangements Policy EP-20-6. In addition, departments’ need to be sufficiently staffed, including at the on-campus work location, to deliver high-quality services to students, faculty and staff; this will in many cases limit the number of employees who can work remotely, even if their job duties can otherwise be performed remotely. Approval of a remote work arrangement is a privilege, and employees are not guaranteed the opportunity to work remotely.
