Who Is Eligible for an AWA?

Exempt and non-exempt employees in graded and ungraded staff positions may be eligible for an Alternative Work Assignment (AWA). Bargaining unit staff should consult their collective bargaining agreement to review any applicable flexibility provisions.  

The employee’s manager and/or senior officer retains the discretion to decide the AWA type(s) available to staff based upon the manager-assigned position work location (PWL) designated in Workday and unit operational needs. PWLs should not be assigned based on an employee’s workload.

Please note: While a PWL cannot be appealed, an AWA decision can be appealed by emailing the employee’s next level supervisor.
