Remote Work Information

Telecommuting Agreements for Remote and Hybrid Staff

Employee Work Status Definitions

  • Remote Work Schedule - Employees will work remotely at all times. However, these employees occasionally may be on-site for a meeting or to attend a University function or event. A remote worker typically will not maintain a designated physical office or cubicle space on campus.
  • Hybrid Work Schedule - Employees will work on-site for a specified number of days each week on a regular schedule. The scheduled days the employee works on-site may vary from week to week.
  • On-site Work Schedule - Employees will work on-site at a WVU campus or location in a dedicated workspace on a regular schedule.

Telecommunication Agreement Process

Important information to know:

  • If they have not already done so, remote and hybrid employees should meet with their supervisor to discuss specific details related to their schedule prior to completing their agreement.
  • Once employees have signed and submitted their Telecommuting Agreement, it will be routed to their first- and second-level supervisors for final approval. Employees will be able to view/print their final agreement within the Blue system after all signatures are received.
  • Telecommuting Agreements will be effective July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022 (or at such time that there are changes to an employee’s job status or position that may require a different work arrangement).
