Spring Telework Week at Mason: March 9-13, 2015
If you have ever contemplated teleworking or wondered how your office may benefit from it, now’s the time to try it out! From March 9-13 Mason will be celebrating its very own Telework Week and there is an abbreviated telework agreement just for this special week. Questions about telework? Check out our FAQs at flexwork.gmu.edu.
Please note that employees who participate in Telework Week are doing so under the terms of the Flexible Work Policy, #2202. Signing the abbreviated Telework Week agreement binds the employee/supervisor to the terms and conditions of the complete telework agreement.

Action Needed: Please Check Your Address in Banner on 2/16
Do I need to do anything? Yes, as of Monday, February 16th, we ask that you please verify your address in PatriotWeb to ensure accuracy. In most cases, changes that Clean Address makes are cosmetic: capitalization, use of standard abbreviations, and consistent spacing. But in the rare case that your address is incorrect, you should make corrections. While entering or updating an address in PatriotWeb, you will receive feedback on whether it meets USPS rules for delivery. If for some reason your address is not USPS-compliant, but you are certain it is accurate, you will be allowed to save it regardless of the warnings you receive.
If you have any questions, please contact the ITU Support Center at 703-993-8870 or email@example.com.
