Open Enrollment For 2022 Benefits Is Now Open, Oct 11 - Oct 29

Open Enrollment is an opportunity for all benefits-eligible employees to enroll in or make changes to their benefits for the upcoming year. Open Enrollment is passive this year, which means if you do not make any changes, you will remain in the same coverage for 2022, except for FSA/HSA elections. Visit 2022 Benefits Open Enrollment: Back TUgether for more info. 



Flexible Work Arrangements

There are three types of flexible work arrangements: Flextime, Compressed Workweek, and Remote Work.

Flextime and a Compressed Workweek are alternative work schedule options that allow employees some flexibility in their schedules, where operationally appropriate. Employees are still expected to work either core hours with a flextime schedule or the same number of hours with a compressed workweek, but it allows them the opportunity to adjust work schedules to be more advantageous to their work or personal needs. Both Flextime and Compressed Workweek arrangements must align with the responsibilities of a particular role and require review and approval by supervisors.

Remote Work is offered on a limited basis, and approval for remote positions is reserved for roles requiring highly specialized positions or where local talent is not readily available. Remote work is an alternative work option where an employee’s official work location is off-site regularly (fully remote) or some of the time (hybrid). Still, they may be required to come onto campus for meetings or other activities. For Academic units, approval is required by the Dean and then Provost. Requests from all other units must be submitted by the departmental Vice President to the Associate Vice President of Human Resources and Institutional Equity before submission to the Chief Operating Officer. The Associate Vice President of Human Resources will notify the department of the decision.
