UCSF encourages telecommuting from home offices to create a supportive work environment. Telecommuting is a voluntary work arrangement in which an eligible employee with approval “works one or more days each work week from home instead of commuting to a work place.”

Telecommuting is generally not intended for situations involving employees who no longer reside in California where the workplace is located, nor is it intended as a means of working from home on a full-time basis. Any establishment of a telecommuting agreement outside the state of California may carry tax implications and must be discussed with both the Controller’s Office and Labor and Employee Relations.

For more information, please review the Telecommuting Guidelines and Procedures on the UCSF People Connect website.
