Adjustments to Work Arrangements

The following outlines the process to make changes to Fall 2021 staffing plans. 

Process

  • 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 must consult with the department head or center director before submitting as units are still expected to meet college criteria
  •  All employees moving from onsite to hybrid or fully remote must be reviewed by HHD HR and approved through the college before the change is implemented. Employees can be moved from remote or hybrid to onsite without college-level approval.  All changes in work status need to be reported by the employee's supervisor to HHD HR.  
  • 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.
