Flexible Work Arrangements and ADA Requests

Dear HSC Faculty and Staff,

We are looking forward to you joining us on campus in Fort Worth soon.

As we adapt to life in the midst of our battle against the pandemic, we understand there may be questions surrounding Flexible Work Arrangements and HSC’s vaccine protocol. As your partner, HSC Campus HR wants to provide you the following information.

Flexible Work Arrangements and ADA
Effective May 17, 2021, team members not required to work in-person, on-campus must have an approved Flexible Work Arrangement form on file with HSC Campus HR and have completed related training. Team members who were previously on an approved FWA must submit a new request. All existing FWA’s must be reevaluated prior to May 17, 2021.

Team members who are seeking reasonable accommodations due to a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or a Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA)should follow the established System and campus procedures outlined in the links below.

Flexible Work Arrangement form must be completed and signed by the team member, their immediate supervisor, and their secondary supervisor.

The completed form must be emailed to HSC.HR@untsystem.edu.

HSC Campus HR will verify that the UNT World Learning FWA training has been completed and will retain the form.

Supervisors and team members must complete the UNT World Learning training on FWA’s, regardless if completed previously.

UNT World Learning – Required Training for FWA.

If you are a supervisor with a team member that requests an FWA and you will also request an FWA for yourself, you must complete both the Employee and the Supervisor training.

Secondary supervisors are also required to complete the Supervisor training.

If you have any questions about what your return to campus will look like, please talk with your supervisor and resubmit FWA documentation or seek a reasonable accommodation, as applicable.

HSC Vaccine Protocol

  • Our vaccine protocol is based on numerous factors including, but not limited to, Governor Abbot’s recent Executive Order and the FDA’s granting of emergency use status for vaccines that have not yet received FDA approval.
  • We currently do not require HSC faculty and/or staff be vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • While not required, we encourage all HSC faculty and/or staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • Should you choose to be vaccinated, you can register here for a vaccine in Tarrant County.

Have questions? Contact your HSC Campus HR team at HSC.HR@untsystem.edu or call 817-735-2690.

Thank you for doing your part to create a safe and healthy HSC community.

Best regards,

Janine Watkins
Executive Director
