UK outlined its work from home policy/process. Deans have the authority to delegate approval on the remote work requests and in our college, this will be delegated to chairs and unit directors. Our units are in the best position to know how to balance our services. We certainly want to be generous, safe and appropriate and we know what will keep our units running the best.

The Temporary Remote Work Form is automated so that supervisors automatically receive it when submitted by the employee. Supervisors need to discuss it with their respective chair or unit director prior to approval. 

Requests recommended for approval should then be sent to Dean Nancy Cox ( and copied to Tim West ( When the approval is made in the college it should not be sent back to HR.

If units, such as Extension, already have a work from home policy and system, it is not necessary to fill out that form. It should be recorded in another manner.
