To provide guidelines and standards for the establishment of telecommuting arrangements either requested by regular, temporary or student employees in an active pay status or when required by the University.
UT Policy HR0480 – Work Schedules establishes standards for work schedules which accommodate both the business needs of the University and, as feasible, employee requests. Alternate work schedules, such as telecommuting, may be developed and approved by administration in collaboration with the Office of Human Resources. Telecommuting is defined as a work arrangement approved in advance in which an employee works at least part of their work hours off-campus from an alternative location. On an as-needed basis, the University may approve occasional telecommuting arrangements (as defined under Section II.A.1 below) without the establishment of a formal telecommuting agreement.
These guidelines are designed to provide the structure needed for effective implementation and operation of telecommuting arrangements. University administrators and employees are responsible for ensuring compliance with the provisions of these guidelines. Please submit all Telecommuting Arrangement questions and forms to [email protected].
