Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA)

Salaried Staff FWA Guidelines

Staff members and their supervisors must discuss their needs to develop the best possible arrangement for their situation. Find the steps for introducing a flexible work arrangement by visiting "Requesting Arrangements".  The following provides additional information for staff members and their supervisors:
  • After the application form for a FWA is approved it should be forwarded to Human Resources to be housed in the Work Life Connections Office.
  • Staff members considering a reduced FWA schedule should discuss any potential impact on staff benefits with the Work Life Connections Office. For example, pay, compensation, benefits, etc. 
  • Staff members who have completed their probationary period are eligible to apply for a flexible work schedule.
  • All FWA’s will be granted on a pilot basis for up to 3 months. Decision to grant or deny a FWA is solely up to the supervisor and appointing officer and is not subject to a grievance procedure.
  • Staff and supervisor should discuss the work schedule for work weeks that include holidays.
  • A supervisor or staff member, with reasonable notice, may terminate or modify the FWA at any time.
  • If a FWA is agreed to, typically a staff member will be able to return to their original work arrangement.  However, this should be discussed during the approval process.
