Difference between Telework and Remote Work
- Remote Work: employee permanently works from an alternative worksite
- Telework: employee works from home on a regular or ad hoc basis but reports to the office at least once a week/two days a pay period
This distinction is important because an employee's official duty station impacts the locality pay. For details, refer to OPM's website on location based pay.
