Hybrid Work Schedule

ESF employees whose job duties require them to be fully in-person (e.g., Police, Mailroom, Facilities) should report to work. All others may temporarily work a Hybrid schedule through December 31, 2022, under the following conditions:

This temporary use of Hybrid scheduling will follow the same process as the existing Telecommuting Policy.

We also encourage employees to utilize their leave accruals during this period; leave requests should be submitted as soon as possible, and will be liberally approved based on operational need.

Unless otherwise notified by Human Resources, an employee should begin working the agreed-upon remote schedule with the approval of their supervisor and department head.

Supervisors and/or department heads should email Human Resources of any schedules that have been adjusted and what those adjustments are.
