Adjustments to Work Arrangements

Any individual who is asked to return to work on campus who is not comfortable performing work on site may request adjustments to work arrangements. 


  • To arrange adjustments, employees should first discuss options with their supervisor. These may include, but are not limited to, reconfiguring work spaces, developing of alternative work schedules, redistribution of tasks, and modifications to space to allow for employees to feel comfortable working on site. 
  • Supervisors are encouraged to consult with the department head or center director when necessary.
  • If adjustments cannot be agreed upon through discussion with the supervisor, the employee should contact HHD Human Resources. HHD Human Resources is also available for consultation to employees and supervisors at any point in the process to assist in identifying creative solutions where feasible.
