Remote and Hybrid Work
Remote work: Job functions that can be performed effectively from entirely off-campus locations. Remote employees do not have personally assigned on-campus workspaces. Remote work at locations outside the state of Iowa requires university-level approval—see below.
Hybrid work: Job functions that can be performed effectively from a combination of on- and off-campus locations. Hybrid employees typically spend 2-3 days per week at an off-campus location. They generally do not have personally assigned on-campus workstations. They university typically provides equipment only for a hybrid employee’s primary work location.
Out-of-state work (domestic): More than 30 consecutive days of work from any U.S. state other than Iowa. Out-of-state arrangements may have implications for taxes, benefits, and other factors. Additional university-level review is required.
Out-of-state work (international): More than 14 consecutive days of work from outside the United States. International arrangements may have implications for taxes, benefits, and other factors. Additional university-level review and memoranda of understanding are required.
Flexible Schedules and Related Arrangements
Flexible schedule: Designated work hours that differ from standard start and stop times for employing units but do not change total number of hours worked per week. An employee might work the same schedule every day, set different schedules for different days, or establish other arrangements. Work may be performed on or off campus.
Compressed work week: A full work week condensed into fewer than five work days. Work may be performed on or off campus.
Job sharing: Dividing responsibilities of a full-time position—evenly or unevenly—between two employees. Appointment percentages for each employee affect salary, benefits, and leave accruals. Work may be performed on or off campus.
See the Work Arrangements policy in the university’s Operations Manual for more information.
