The College of Information and Communications recognizes the value of telecommuting for our employees. Telecommuting is a management tool allowing for flexibility in work options, but it's not suitable for all employees or positions.
- Telecommuting does not change the basic terms and conditions of employment. It is a management option and not a universal employee benefit.
- The decision to allow an employee to telecommute is solely at the discretion of the College of Information and Communications.
- The university/college may revoke the approval of any employee to telecommute at any time, with or without notice.
- CIC has approved eligible employees to telecommute a maximum of one scheduled day per week.
- CIC eligible employees are not permitted to telecommute on Mondays or Fridays.
- If an employees scheduled telecommuting day falls on sick/annual leave or university holiday, the holiday and/or leave supersedes the scheduled telecommuting day for that week. This does not allow employees to change their scheduled day.
Please contact Rachel Rolli (email@example.com) with questions.
