Update for ETSU on Remote Work Locations - March 18, 2020
As was announced in the March 16 Weekly Update, ETSU has been planning a process that allows for continuity of operations, affording the opportunity for designated staff and faculty to work from remote locations. The Office of Human Resources has been working with campus leaders to develop a protocol for select employees to transition to a remote/distance/alternative work environment. The document below temporarily replaces our existing telecommuting policy until further notice.
We are actively striving to answer questions and resolve issues as they arise, and we thank you for your patience. ETSU’s anticipate that a significant volume of staff will be working from remote/distance/alternative locations in the upcoming days. It is critical to note that the university will remain open throughout the days and weeks to come. The institution’s commitment to our students and to our teaching, research and service mission will not waiver.
