The process to determine eligibility for remote or hybrid work by position will begin this spring. These questions should help decide position eligibility for remote or hybrid work for staff positions. You can view the final work location guidelines here.
If you have dual-report positions with a dotted line to another supervisor, you should reach an agreement with that supervisor on whether the position is appropriate for remote or hybrid work.
If the response to any of the following question is "yes," the position is not suitable for remote work:
- Does the position have daily face-to-face interaction with students, patients, co-workers, direct reports or other members of our community that require an on-site presence?
- Does this position require on-site responsibilities such as classroom support, mail, receiving materials, filing, event preparation, etc.?
- Would this position working remotely require others to assume some of their responsibilities?
- Does the position require close supervision or monitoring daily?
- Does the position require special equipment that is not available in a remote environment?
- Does the position require access to systems, networks, or security features that cannot be reliably and securely accessed in a remote environment?
- Would remote work for this position result in a measurable decrease in the level of service provided to customers, such as less student access to the employee?
