Flexible Work Policy & Agreement


Flexible Work Arrangements Policy 0-612: The practice of working at a remote location instead of physically traveling to a central workplace (“Flexible Work Arrangement”) is a work alternative available to employees at the University of South Florida with management approval, provided that the arrangement is conducive to University operations and performance of the employee’s job duties. This policy establishes guidelines for approving and administering Flexible Work Arrangements.


As a best practice, employees and supervisors should complete the Flexible Work Assessments to guide further discussion about an applicable arrangement. 


Employees can complete and submit a Flexible Work Request via GEMS Self Service. Upon receiving the email notification, managers can log into GEMS to Approve or Reject the Flexible Work Request. Click here for instructions.
