    As soon as a supervisor provides authorization, an employee can work remotely following their required registration on our remote workforce site.

    By Monday, March 16, supervisors should have identified student workers, researchers and staff who can work remotely, meaning their work can be done partially or entirely away from campus. Supervisors should determine, in consultation with their employees, whether it is feasible for them to work remotely and if so, the manner in which they will perform their responsibilities.

    • Let your head of your business unit know immediately (or your professor, if you’re a student)
