What is telework?

Telework is a flexible work arrangement where employees perform their job duties at an approved alternate worksite. Telework aligns and supports the following:

  • Accomplishment of work
  • Agency productivity
  • Continuity of Operations Plans and emergency preparedness
  • Recruitment/retention strategies
  • Reduction of traffic and emissions
  • Government real estate cost savings for taxpayers
  • Work/life wellness

Employees are not entitled to telework. Employees should discuss telework eligibility and arrangements with their supervisors. Please contact your IC Telework Coordinator for IC specific guidance.
