Remote Work


Remote work is an arrangement in which an employee’s official duty station is an approved alternative worksite. The approved alternative worksite may be inside or outside the local commuting area of the Agency worksite and is typically, although not always, the employee’s residence.

Remote work is not an employee entitlement, but rather a workplace flexibility that may be available dependent on a variety of factors and with supervisory approval. 

Remote work is an increasingly common arrangement at not only the NIH but across the federal government and in the private sector.  Remote work may be considered if the nature of work requires onsite work to be performed less than two days during a typical bi-weekly pay period.
