Remote Work and Human Resources
Penn State is directing all employees who have been working from home during the pandemic to continue doing so throughout the spring semester, unless notified by their supervisors of the need to return to onsite work.
- Employees are reminded that working remotely does not include remote work from outside of the country, unless the employee and supervisor have requested and received specific approval.
We recognize that remote work is not possible for every employee across all campuses. As with the current and previous semesters, leaders and managers in each campus, college and unit will determine which employees can work remotely. For employees whose duties require them to keep working on campus, all members of the Penn State community will continue to follow appropriate health and safety measures, which include wearing masks, practicing social distancing and avoiding large groups.
Employees should contact their supervisors with any questions regarding expectations for the spring semester.
Additional guidance and resources for employees working remotely is available on the University’s Remote Work website.
