Telework as a Flexible Work Option

Purdue University Fort Wayne Human Resources is pleased to offer information and guidelines for supervisors on telework as a flexible work option.  These guidelines are being offered to assist supervisors and their exempt and non-exempt employees in determining if telework is a viable option when considering a flexible work schedule. 

Telework, also known as telecommuting, remote work, virtual work, and mobile work refers to work done outside the traditional on-site work environment. Telework jobs may be completely virtual or mobile, or may be various arrangements that enable the employee to work from home a few days per week or month.

If an employee approaches you with interest in telework as a flexible work option, or for more information regarding the guidelines and procedures for executing a telework agreement, please refer to the following or contact Purdue University Fort Wayne Human Resources at 260-481-5720:
