Remote Working

JCU is committed to providing a healthy, safe and flexible working environment for its staff.

The Remote Working policy and accompanying procedure is now in effect.  Staff will be able to apply for a Remote Working Arrangement from 26 February 2021.

The aim of the policy and procedure will be to assist Staff Members and their Supervisor to set in place a remote working arrangement where it is considered safe, suitable and appropriate (it will not be an automatic entitlement).
