Many McGill employees have been working in person at the University throughout the pandemic, but many administrative and support (A&S) staff have had to work from home for much of the time.
A&S staff who have been working from home need to be on campus approximately 30% of the time, on average, by mid-August.
- Depending on the building context and operational needs, some staff may be asked to come in for a larger or smaller percentage of time. The percentage of onsite time could change as building usage is evaluated.
- For example, buildings that host a large number of classes will have a greater volume of students, and A&S staff may need to come in less to maintain distancing in common areas. In buildings that are home to A&S staff only, with no classes, staff could be onsite up to 60% of their time.
- Your supervisor will let you know if you need to exceed the 30% or reduce your time on campus.
Once government restrictions are eased to allow for full occupancy of buildings, all A&S staff will return to work in person full time. A ramp-up period of approximately two weeks will allow staff to transition from 30% to 100% of time onsite.
The Interim Flexible Work Arrangements program, allowing eligible staff to work remotely up to 40% of their time with their supervisor’s permission, will be available once all A&S staff are allowed to work onsite full time. Until then, most eligible employees will be working 70% of their time from home, so there is no need for the Interim Flexible Work Arrangement.
