Remote Work Handbook

Purpose: Review responsibilities related to remote work

While you are working from home, it’s important to understand your obligations and expectations with your supervisor. The Remote Work Handbook covers guidelines, procedures and resources for an employee or supervisor. For additional details, visit the Remote Work webpage.

Protecting you and CU

To ensure your safety, and to protect the university from liability, please note the following:

  • All CU information security and records management retention policies apply to employees who work from home.
  • Employees who work from home are still bound by federal, State of Colorado and University of Colorado Regent laws, policies and procedures.
  • CU is not liable for injuries or damages that occur at the off-site work location.
  • If an employee who works from home is injured while performing university business, he/she is covered by Worker's Compensation. The employee must report those injuries to his/her supervisor immediately and follow appropriate procedures.
  • Classified staff members can review the State of Colorado's guide "Maximizing Efficiency by Working Smarter" to learn about the pros and cons of working from home.
