It is the policy of VCU to support alternative work arrangements and telework options for employees as appropriate. This includes compressed, flex and staggered schedules; reduced schedules and job sharing; and telework. Requests for alternative work arrangements are handled on a case-by-case basis and are granted at the university’s discretion. The alternative work arrangement form, telework agreement form and flexible work agreement form (found on the forms page) must be signed by the employee, management and HR representative and placed in the employee’s official personnel file. The manager and employee should also retain a copy. Alternative work arrangement and telework guidelines apply depending on employee type (University and Academic Professional or Classified).
