Faculty/ASP Request for Accommodation to Remote Work due to Higher Risk for Severe Illness due to COVID-19

EIU has adopted a remote work policy to accommodate Faculty/ASP who are considered at higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19.

Instructions: Employees who are at a higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19 or care for someone who does should complete this form to request to work remotely for the Fall 2020 semester.

The CDC has outlined the conditions that would qualify for this remote work policy at

To be considered, the employee will need to provide documentation from their physician.
If a remote work assignment is approved, the employee is still required to comply with reporting and availability requirements as directed by their supervisor/chair/dean.

Additional requirements may be placed on individuals with immigration visas.

Questions may be directed to benefits@eiu.edu or by calling 217-581-5825.
