When should a supervisor approve or disapprove a request for a Flexible Work Arrangement?

All decisions should be focused on the organizational needs and objective criteria related to work performance and job demands. A consistent approach to analyzing the situation should be applied. It is important to communicate to each employee the decision and its rationale. Documenting the basis for these decisions is important in case questions arise later. Human Resource Services can help supervisors develop objective criteria to use and a strategy for communicating your decision.

Circumstances may exist where the work is not suitable for Flexible Work Arrangements. In addition, circumstances may change in a department causing a Flexible Work Arrangement to change or be discontinued.
