Wvu Telecommuting Agreement


    Workers who end up working from home will have to sign a telecommuting agreement with the university, which is still in development, but essentially they will say that employees will only do their same tasks remotely. We understand that this is an unprecedented transition for all of us. Tomorrow, you will receive several resources to support this transition. They will include a supervisor toolkit, a telework agreement, information about taking equipment with you, and other resources. Please direct any questions regarding this transition to your supervisor, Vice-President and Human Resources. Please note; The documents have been prepared for use by all Fairmont State University staff, any reference to “supervisor” refers to your dean, president or provost. Fairmont State University has extended spring break for face-to-face classes to ensure faculty are able to offer online courses in case the university has to close. We have provided mandatory training for all faculties on a variety of topics related to the continuity of teaching. Teachers must show up the week of March 16-20, 2020 for training on resources available to improve teaching, including OneDrive, Microsoft Teams (video and chat), Outlook, Blackboard, Respondus, Big Blue Button, and more. They requested and were allowed to telework to eliminate daily commuting. This allowed the employee to meet their toilet needs, but also to perform the work efficiently.

    Thanks to your flexibility and foresight, Fairmont State has already made arrangements for this policy by moving our operations remotely. This transition allows us to offer courses digitally and keep our faculty and staff functional while minimizing the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. The campus is still closed to all members of the community. This includes all campus facilities and all recreational uses on campus. You can call the office at 1-888-680-7342 and leave a message. A representative will call you back within 3 to 5 business days. A video explaining the available technology and its use will be recorded after the classrooms are set up for the fall semester. These resources will be available on the Tech Commons website. www.fairmontstate.edu/it/tech-commons The employer stated that the employee`s work could not be done effectively if she worked full-time from home, but allowed the employee to telework twice a week. The employee disagreed with the employer`s decision and filed a complaint of non-compliance.

    In response, the employer ended the employee`s telework. This action was in retaliation for the filing of a complaint. Are there any rules for recording the lesson for later viewing by students? What software is used? Fairmont State University requires all students to wear face masks on one of Fairmont State`s campuses. Students with disabilities who are unable to wear a face mask can request an appropriate change to the university`s mandatory face mask policy. To begin this process, students should contact the Accessibility Services Office in access@fairmontstate.edu to make an appointment. Students must provide documentation proving that they meet the ADA definition of a person with a disability and describe the required change. A change/exemption of face mask will be noted on the student`s academic adaptation letter for his/her professors. .
