Interim Flexible Work Arrangements (IFWA) for Admin/Support Staff
A detailed program description of the McGill Interim Flexible Work Arrangements program can be found on McGill's Central HR site. Beyond Central HR's program outline, specific parametres may differ between faculties within McGill. The following guidelines are set out by the Faculty of Education:
All administrative and support staff are eligible to apply for the interim program, including employees on probation/ trial periods and performance improvement plans. While all administrative and support employees may request a flexible work arrangement, the approval should be based on operational requirements and the employee’s specific role and responsibilities.
The Faculty of Education has determined that the core hours of operation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. As such, the employee's start time cannot be earlier than 8:00 a.m. and no later than 10:00 a.m. The end of one's work day cannot be earlier than 4:00 p.m.
Requests and Approval
1. Interested employees are encouraged to discuss the request with their manager who ensures the request is workable for the unit considering the nature of the work and the employee understands the documents required to support the request. The requests for a flexible work arrangement need to be submitted to their manager by email, copying the simona.lupu [at] mcgill.ca (HR Advisor). Any request that is out of the norm or seems problematic should be discussed with the HR Advisor, before accepting or refusing. If declining a request, the manager reviews with HR advisor and informs the employee in person to ensure they understand the decision.
2. Employee and manager review the request to ensure it meets the requirements of the IFWA program as well as Faculty-level requirements.
3. All IFWA requests require the approval of both manager and HR Advisor. Before communicating a decision to the employee, the manager ensures all parties have approved the request. Only then, the final decision can be communicated to the employee.
4. The manager will evaluates the IFWA success three 3 months into the program.
For the initial IFWA period, requests need to be submitted by May 15, 2022 by end of day to ensure program rollout can be achieved in time for admin/support staff's return to campus at 100% for May 30, 2022. Managers will provide a response by May 30, 2022 at the latest. For applications that fall later, past this period, please consult with the HR Advisor.
