Remote Work Participation Agreement

The University of Colorado Denver Campus Alternate Work Arrangements policy was recently revised and approved. This policy replaces the old Alternative Work Arrangements policy. The new electronic process replaces the former paper Flexplace Participation form. The policy was effective June 1, 2021 for the Denver Campus and effective September 7, 2021, for the Anschutz Medical Campus and Consolidated Units. After September 1, 2021, documentation for employee remote work arrangements as provided for under that policy is required. To comply with the policy, employees need to submit new remote work requests using the Remote Work Participation Agreement Form.
