1. How long will it take my proposal to be approved by my supervisor?

It will likely take 1-3 weeks for a supervisor to evaluate a request. It may take longer depending on individual schedules.

2. Can my flexible work arrangement be changed? Who can make a change?

With reasonable notice, either the supervisor or employee can change or terminate a flexible work arrangement. The first priority for a supervisor is to have an appropriately staffed operation, so if something changes in the department, a flexible work arrangement may need to be altered. If there is an emergency, a supervisor has the option to change an employee's schedule. Whenever possible, an employee should be given at least 30 days notice when a change is necessary.

3. As a flexplace worker, I'm concerned about losing connections with my co-workers. Any suggestions?

Touch base with your co-workers at least once a week. Be present at meetings whenever possible. Conference calls are ok, but physical presence is better. If you work from home several days a week, be prepared, if asked by your supervisor, to attend key meetings. Make sure that everyone knows how to get in touch with you if they have an urgent matter.

4. What happens if a meeting, training session or important event is scheduled when I am supposed to be off?

It is important to remember that the work of the university and the department must not suffer as a result of employees using flexible work options. There will be events or meetings that cannot be scheduled around your flexible schedule. The employee and supervisor would need to discuss and determine how it will be handled. In some cases, the employee may have to come in. The schedule for non-exempt employees would have to be adjusted so that overtime would be avoided.

5. What if my schedule needs to be adjusted for a short period of time for a special event or specific project? Do I need to fill out the form?

No. If a schedule is being adjusted for a short time, less than 4 months, it isn't necessary to use the process.

6. I want to take a class, but don't want to have to take vacation. Can this policy be used to accommodate that request?

You can develop a flexible schedule, in conjunction with your supervisor, on a semester-by-semester basis to meet this need. This type of arrangement would not require filling out the Flexible Work Options form because it is a temporary situation, less than 4 months.

7. What do I do if my flexible work arrangement isn't working out?

Your first step is to talk with your supervisor. It is up to the two of you to work out the details. If there are issues, contact your HR Business Partner.
