What is Teleworking?

Teleworking is a work arrangement in which some or all of the work is performed from home or another off-site location. In general, regular office hours are worked and deviations from that schedule require supervisor approval.

Arrangements are generally voluntary agreements between employees and their departments. The department head determines feasibility of each individual telework arrangement. A decision should be based on evaluation of the work to be accomplished, benefits to the department, interactions required between the teleworker and other staff or customers, and demonstrated skills of the employee. Telework may be required or mutually beneficial due to operational needs, space constraints and/or the nature of the assignment. If applicable, telework requirements should be designated as a condition of employment during recruitment for the position.

Steps to Getting Started
  1. Employee has a conversation with their supervisor
  2. Employee fills out Telework Request Form (docx)
  3. Supervisor shares request with Appointing Authority for further discussion or approval
