BGSU Flexible Work and Remote Work Policy

Alternative work arrangements such as flexible work and remote work can result in improved productivity, recruitment and retention of skilled staff, and improved employee satisfaction. These arrangements can provide employees with increased versatility in work schedule or location while allowing the University to maintain a progressive and productive work environment.

General Information Regarding Flexible Work and Remote Work Arrangements


The University recognizes that some positions may easily adapt to alternative work arrangements while others may not. It is the University's policy that all requests will be reviewed and all requests will be considered. Note: The Office of Human Resources retains the right to deny or discontinue a proposal that does not comply with local, state, or federal laws or regulations or University rules or policies.

How Long Do Arrangements Last?

These arrangements are discretionary benefits extended to eligible employees and should not be viewed as automatic or permanent. These arrangements can be approved for up to one year and will expire at the end of the approved period. It is possible to renew the agreement, but approval is not guaranteed. Ultimately, any arrangements must be in the best interests of the University.

Renewing/Modifying Arrangements

It is important to know that these arrangements are subject to ongoing review. If the needs of the department or unit require a change or cancellation to the arrangement, a 14-calendar-day notice will be provided to you in writing, if feasible. You may also modify or end your arrangement early by contacting your supervisor.
