The college has a long practice of giving supervisors wide latitude to develop flexible work schedules to meet their employees' individual needs where such requests can be accommodated. This policy includes Compressed Work Schedules (the employee compresses the work schedule into fewer days over a one or two week period) and Alternative Work Schedules (the employee start and ending time each day can vary by a predetermined amount as long as core hours are worked and total weekly hours are not reduced.)
The College of Southern Maryland considers Telecommuting to be a voluntary and viable work option that, when appropriately applied, benefits the employees by addressing their quality of life concerns, the college by addressing its business needs, and the community by reducing traffic congestion, air pollution, and use of non-renewable energy sources.
