How do I Request a Flexible Work Arrangement? (FWA)

The Emory WorkLife Resource Center recommends you prepare a written proposal and discuss the arrangement with your manager. Since not all jobs are suitable for flexible work arrangements, department level approval is required.

Please understand that the Emory WorkLife Resource Center does not mandate flexible work arrangements for any employee. The Emory WorkLife staff can provide you with guidance and coaching in developing a proposal or assistance with how to approach your manager. Ultimately, the decision whether to implement or continue an FWA remains the decision of your direct supervisor.

For information on developing an FWA proposal, review our Staff Guide to Developing an FWA Proposal.

If you would like guidance and coaching in developing your proposal, email the center or call (404) 727-8000.
