SUNY Telecommuting Policy

Republished June 25, 2024


The SUNY Telecommuting Policy  has been officially extended by the New York State Office of Employee Relations (OER) through June 30, 2025.

About the Policy

This policy is a positive step forward and will assist our institution’s efforts to assist with work productivity and increase employee engagement overall. SUNY’s policy will support telecommuting and flexible work, where it is reasonable to do so, based on the university’s mission, operational and program needs. 

Directly from the policy:

“This program’s purpose is to support implementation of telecommuting programs, where desired, establish guidelines designed to clearly articulate employee and campus expectations, and provide an additional vehicle for employee development while offering campus management the flexibility to operate a successful telecommuting program and plan for future workforce needs.”
