    Electronic Flexible Work Agreement

    New year, new Flexible Work Agreement! Your Flexible Work Agreement is now online and combines all flexible work options together. Using Dynamic Forms, employees complete this new form online and have it automatically sent to supervisors and department heads for signatures.

    If you have an existing and unexpired paper flexible work/telework agreement, there is no need to resubmit! When your existing agreement needs to be renewed, please use the online form.

    To aid this transition, we created a walk through video. A version of the video with subtitles is also available. 

    Please visit for more information about your options as an employee. If you have any questions, please email

    Inclement Weather Resources


    Winter weather is fast approaching! Utilize the resources below to prepare.

    Staying Updated

    Stay updated on university closings, late openings, or other weather-related changes in the university's schedule through Mason's switchboard at 703-993-1000, Mason Alert, the university's homepage, as well as local media outlets.

    Telework and Inclement Weather

    Having telework agreements and technology in place in advance can come in handy if Mason experiences an extended weather event or other emergency. Teleworkers (if it is their scheduled telework day) and remote workers continue to work even if:

    • Classes are canceled and administrative offices are closed

    • The university is on a modified schedule

    Employees working from home during a university closing are expected to continue working unless it is not possible due to power outages or other conditions that prevent them from working. For more details, visit

    Inclement Weather/Emergency Guidance

    With winter fast approaching, now is a great time to review the Inclement Weather/Emergency Closing Policy
