URA-EJB Telecommuting Guidelines

What is in the “Memorandum of Agreement”?

This agreement is for E.J. Bloustein School staff only.  Telecommuting eligibility is for any overtime exempt (NL) employee. You may apply for “regular” or “occasional” telecommuting. “Regular” telecommuting is defined as from one to three days a week.

If your job does NOT pay you for overtime, and is NOT conducive to working away from office every week, you can still apply for Occasional telecommuting for a small number of days per year.
