Syracuse University supports flexible work schedules that meet the needs of a job, the eligible staff member performing the job, the immediate supervisor and department, and/or the University. Proposals for modifying a traditional schedule may be initiated by an employee or a manager/supervisor. All flexible work schedules must satisfy the University policy requirements as described in the Flexible Work Policy.
- Flu-Related Flexible Work Arrangement (FRFWA)
- Flexible Work Arrangements (FWA): FWA proposals are initiated by an employee to address a personal work/life need.
- Flexible Work and Sustainability (FW&S): FW&S proposals are initiated by the manager or supervisor for the purpose of enhancing University sustainability efforts and alleviating the high costs of commuting for employees.
As a component of its Commitment to Sustainability the University encourages flexible schedules that have a sustainability impact on the institution, school/college, department, and/or employee. Managers and supervisors are expected to explore options with their staff and HR has developed tools to assist in this exploration.
