This Agreement supersedes any prior teleworking agreement in place between you and your

prior working agreement will be reactivated. Note that having successfully engaged in
temporary teleworking pursuant to this Agreement does not require administration to agree to
any future teleworking.
This Agreement is a temporary measure only and will be reviewed continuously during the
period in which SPCC encourages social distancing. Accordingly, SPCC at its discretion, may
alter this schedule or end the temporary teleworking agreement at any time.
This temporary teleworking arrangement will begin with approval from your supervisor and
division Vice President commencing on___________________; and will remain in effect unless
altered or terminated at any time as described above.
Terms of Employment
This Agreement does not alter or supersede the terms and conditions of the existing
employment relationship between you and SPCC. While temporarily teleworking, you will work
just as if you were in your regular work location and maintain productivity, performance,
communication and responsiveness standards as if you were not temporarily teleworking. You
will perform all of your duties as set forth in your job description, as well as and/or different
duties that SPCC may assign from time to time. Further, you remain obligated to comply with
all College rules, practices, policies and procedures that would apply if you were working at a
customary SPCC worksite.
Compensation, Hours, and Leave
Your compensation and benefits will not change while teleworking. Work hours and leave
scheduling must conform to the College’s regular business practices. We (SPCC and you) agree
that you will temporarily telework in accordance with your normal work schedule unless
modified by your supervisor. Requests to work overtime or use leave time must be approved by
your supervisor in the same manner as when working at a customary SPCC worksite.
You will record hours worked in a manner designated by SPCC, and will be held to a higher
