Regular telework: Periodic telework agreements are intended for ongoing telework and must be supported by a written agreement defining the requirements and terms of the agreement. The agreement may last for a defined period of time or continue indefinitely with regular review. Where it is established that the normal task of a faculty member warrants regular work at another off-campus site, including a geographic site outside the State of Iowa, a formal telework agreement is entered into at the time of the offer or assignment to the site located outside the campus.

An additional inspection is required for workplaces located outside the state of Iowa. Workplaces outside the United States may not be accommodated or require an agreement other than a telework agreement. Employees applying for a telework agreement due to illness should be transferred to Human Resource Services (HRS) to discuss possible workplace accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADAAA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA).

It can also reduce commuting and address space restrictions. A. Terms of employment.

Failure to comply with guidelines, rules and procedures may lead to the termination of the telework agreement and/or disciplinary measures.

It may therefore be necessary to temporarily remove certain requirements of this directive, such as the formal telework agreement.
