New Telework Policy for Classified Staff
Governor Youngkin has announced that all state employees who telework one day per week or more must return to in-person work per the requirements outlined in the new DHRM Policy 1.61 Teleworking effective July 5, 2022. For the University of Virginia this applies to Classified Staff only, including those at the College at Wise. This new policy does not apply to University Staff at UVA and UVA Health because Virginia law authorizes colleges and universities to establish and follow their own personnel policies.
However, Classified Staff members who are currently teleworking and wish to remain doing so, must submit a Standard Telework Agreement request. Directions for submitting this request, description of the review process, and FAQs are below.
Any existing telework agreements for Classified Staff will no longer be effective as of July 5. They must be replaced to follow this process.
