This Policy facilitates continuity of KCTCS operations during natural disasters, pandemic health crises or other community hazards that may affect the health and welfare of KCTCS students, employees, and stakeholders by authorizing emergency Remote Work arrangements.
This Policy applies to all KCTCS employees and all KCTCS locations.
- Emergency Remote Work Arrangements. When the KCTCS President and respective College Presidents determine an emergency
exists, KCTCS employees may be directed or permitted to work remotely.
- Remote Work arrangements do not change work responsibilities but merely permit employees
to work at off-site locations temporarily.
- KCTCS policies and procedures apply to work performed remotely. However, emergencies
present novel situations which may require temporary suspension or waiver of, or exemption
from specific policies and procedures. Only the KCTCS President may waive, suspend,
or exempt employees from compliance with KCTCS Policies. College Presidents have the
sole discretion to temporarily suspend or waive procedures specific to their colleges
and employees. Waivers, suspensions, or exemptions shall be valid only if written.
Lifting the emergency order or declaration automatically and without further notice
revokes the waiver, suspension, or exemption. Employees are immediately responsible
for policy compliance once the KCTCS President or designee or College President has
lifted the emergency order.
- Remote Work arrangements shall be governed by specific terms and conditions prescribed by KCTCS, the employees’ College, and work-unit arrangements made with employees’ supervisors.
Administrative Procedure 2.20-P implements this Policy.
