UMW considers teleworking to be a viable alternative work arrangement in cases where the job requirements are best suited to such an arrangement. UMW may designate employees to work at alternate work locations for all or part of their workweek in order to promote general work efficiencies and meet operational needs. UMW may also designate vacant positions as “teleworking required” upon recruitment.
All teleworking, including short term arrangements for projects and medical accommodations, require the completion of a telework agreement.
The Telework Agreement is a written agreement between the employee and supervisor requiring them to adhere to applicable guidelines and policies. The telework agreement is not an employment contract and may not be construed as such. Under state policy, telework agreements may be terminated at the discretion of UMW. Advance notice to the employee is encouraged, but not required.
