Regardless of the work setting or working scenario, UF regulations and policies apply to all employees of the university.  Of particular note are the following:

Remote Work Location Policy

The practice of working at an approved remote location instead of physically traveling to a central workplace is a work alternative that University of Florida supervisors may offer to employees when such requests meets the eligibility criteria established by the University of Florida’s Remote Work Location Policy and when such working arrangements would benefit both the organization and employees, resources can accommodate the requests, and supervisory discretion allows for the employees to work at remote locations.

Wage and Hour/Time Reporting Policies

Wage and Hour Law (governing overtime eligibility for hourly/nonexempt employees) and Time Reporting Procedures must be adhered to in all cases, ensuring that hourly employee overtime is based on hours over 40 in the university’s workweek which runs from Friday through Thursday.

College/Work Unit Policies

Colleges or work units may have complementary policies related to working scenarios, particularly focused on available flexibility as well as conditions under which working at a remote work location or hybrid schedules will be available.  These policies cannot contradict university policies but can address expectations surrounding computer equipment (e.g., UF- versus personally provided), the procedures for returning equipment in need of repair or at the conclusion of employment, etc.

Acceptable Use Policy

The university’s Acceptable Use Policy for IT remains in effect.
