Guidance for Telecommuting
Only essential personnel should report to work in person starting on Monday, March 16. These work arrangements will remain in effect through May 1. In the meantime, all employees will continue to be paid.
Employees who can telecommute are expected to do so. These arrangements should be finalized with their supervisor. To confirm Alternative Work Arrangements (AWA) approval, an employee can rely on their supervisor’s communication that they can telecommute. Learn more about additional details of the University’s Alternative Work Arrangements policy.
Managers are encouraged to maintain a sense of connection and community by holding meetings via Zoom, which allows up to 300 participants to participate in a live web video or audio conference. Features include multiple screen-sharing, chat, video sharing, mobile collaboration including co-annotation, and recording to the cloud or to your computer. Robust mobile apps for iOS and Android devices are available. New to Zoom? Start here.
