Continue to work effectively, wherever you are.
During Fall and Winter Quarters, follow your department’s return-to-campus plans. To balance campus needs with individual employee needs, the Alternate Work Arrangements policy has been extended through March 31, 2021.
Per the Return to Campus Policy, managers must allow an employee to continue remote work when they can perform their essential functions remotely and cannot return due to factors such as a higher-risk of illness or caretaking due to lost childcare.
Northwestern has also established a temporary provision so employees required to return to in-person campus work can request alternative work arrangements.
It is critical that we each take responsibility for maintaining the health of our community.
