New Policy and Resources Provide Guidance and Support for Remote Work

A revised UW–Madison Remote Work Policy will take effect on August 1, 2021. The policy details remote work options and creates procedures and practices that can mitigate the risks and liabilities of remote work. A remote work arrangement must be agreed upon by school/college/division leadership, divisional Human Resources, and the employee’s supervisor. Employees who are interested in remote work should discuss a remote work arrangement with their supervisor before initiating a Remote Work Agreement in MyUW. A checklist for completing a Remote Work Agreement, frequently asked questions and answers, and other tools and resources are available on the webpage, Remote Work: Guidance and Resources for Employees, at Employees who have questions about remote work should contact the human resources department in their school, college, or division.
