Alternative Work Arrangements (AWA)
From time to time, employees may wish to request to work from an alternative location or on a flex work schedule. In these cases, the first step is for the employee to discuss their request with their immediate supervisor. Departments will need to consider the needs of the department in the discussion.
Employees and department heads may want to consult with their Human Resources Business Partner (found here) to assist in ensuring consistent and fair decisions are made.
More information about the AWA policy, HR5061, can be found here.
Keep in mind that requests of a medical nature for the employee may involve Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations instead of Alternative Work Arrangements. More information about the ADA is available here.
