What You Need to Know: Employee Expectations

We've developed plans and guidelines for faculty and staff to ensure we're working in as safe a manner as possible.

Important information

Fall Semester Plans

  • Health and safety protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be followed.
  • All meetings must continue to include an option for remote and hybrid employees to participate (e.g., Zoom, Microsoft Teams, conference line, etc.).
  • At this time, WVU is not requiring vaccination, but it is strongly recommended.
    • Those on the Health Sciences Campus involved in patient care, including residents, fellows and students, are required to follow separate WVU Health System policies, including those related to COVID-19, such as masks, PPE and vaccinations.
  • All employees who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 must verify their vaccine status.

Remote and Hybrid Work for Staff

Telecommuting Agreements

Telecommuting Agreements are effective July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022 (or at such time that there are changes to an employee’s job status or position that may require a different work arrangement).

Visit Employee Relations' Remote Work Information page for more about telecommuting agreements.

Work Schedules

Long-term work arrangements include:

  • Remote Work Schedule – Employees will work remotely at all times. However, these employees occasionally may be on-site for a meeting or to attend a University function or event. A remote worker typically will not maintain a designated physical office or cubicle space on campus.
  • Hybrid Work Schedule – Employees will work on-site for a specified number of days each week on a regular schedule. The scheduled days the employee works on-site may vary from week to week.
  • On-site Work Schedule – Employees will work on-site at a WVU campus or location in a dedicated workspace on a regular schedule.


A special parking program for hybrid and remote employees offers a daily parking pass/rate versus an annual pass/monthly rate.

Workplace Accommodations and Modifications

  • Reasonable ADA accommodations and non-ADA modifications for the fall semester will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • Employees requesting an ADA accommodation or a non-ADA modification for the fall semester were asked to submit the application and updated medical documentation by June 1. Contact with any questions.
  • Employees who previously had an accommodation or modification should be aware that future adjustments may differ from past or current accommodations.
