Alternative Work Arrangements and Teleworking

West Virginia University is directing all supervisors to allow employees to flex their schedules or start working from home when possible to accommodate school closures and to further reduce the potential for community spread of COVID-19.

The Division of Talent and Culture encourages supervisors to be as flexible as possible and permit employees to use alternative work arrangements, such as teleworking, during this time.

To assist supervisors in these efforts, we have developed a website with guidelines and resources on alternative work arrangements and teleworking. We also encourage supervisors to work with their HR partner as they begin developing and implementing these plans.

Further, Information Technology Services continues to prepare enterprise access to the core systems at the University; however, this work is not yet complete.

In the meantime, employees should avoid using WorkSpace and those applications accessed through it (e.g., Mountaineer Administrative Processes (MAP), Banner Admin and MyTime and Leave) when working remotely. All web applications will be available to employees working remotely, including:

  • Axiom Finance
  • Banner Self-Service (STAR)
  • Chrome River (MyExpenses)
  • Collaborate
  • CS Gold (MyMountaineerCard)
  • Degree Works
  • eCampus
  • Google G Suite
  • Office 365
  • Unifier
  • Salesforce Service Cloud
  • TargetX
