Flexible Work Arrangement
Information found on this page is for the current Flexible Work Arrangement Policy that does not include the enhanced telecommuting option.
Flexible work arrangements (FWA) at Kent State are designed to support work/life balance for employees and are to be used for related purposes, including, but not limited to, participation in university-sponsored wellness activities/events, physical activity, child care, professional development, and to more effectively perform daily job responsibilities. Please reference policy 3342-6-01.2 for a definition of eligible employees.
Although not every position can take advantage of an FWA, there are a variety of ways that schedule flexibility can be customized to work for both the department and the individual. Departments are encouraged to have open dialogues regarding flexible work and integrate it as a standard business practice, where applicable. Employees may use the FWA Request Form to initiate such dialogue. The determination of whether an employee will be allowed to participate in a flexible work arrangement will be made on a case-by-case basis and in accordance with the needs, requirements, and constraints of the department.
Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA) training is required prior to applying for or taking supervisory action (i.e. approval/denial) of a flexible work arrangement. This training is for both the applicant (employee) and any and all approvers of a flexible work arrangement.
Flexible Work Arrangement Termination Form - Complete only if terminating all flexible work arrangements and returning to customary hours for your position. If you wish to alter or discontinue your current arrangement and request a new FWA, please complete the request form above and indicate on the form that your new arrangement will replace all prior FWAs.
