SUNY released the Telecommuting Policy on August 2, 2021. The policy will support telecommuting and flexible work, where it is reasonable to do so, based on the University’s mission, operational and program needs. Employees in the College of Arts and Sciences should review the process and timelines and discuss the policy with their supervisors prior to requesting telecommuting under the pilot program.
- This is solely for the SUNY Telecommuting pilot program and not for FMLA or other medical related accommodations.
- Approved arrangements can be modified, suspended or cancelled at any time.
- This policy applies to all full time and part time staff, bargaining units and funding sources, however a faculty member typically already has flexibility built into their work schedule so it is primarily intended for staff.
- This policy does not apply to any student employees (TA/GA/RAs, etc.).
If you have additional questions, please visit the UB HR webpage for the most updated information, discuss your concerns with your supervisor, or contact Kate Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
