 WORK LIFE - TELEWORK

Telework is an alternative work location arrangement for employees, supervisors, and managers. It allows employees to perform official work from a location other than their traditional office location. All DON positions are not eligible for telework and employees must have supervisory approval.

Public Law 111-292 , the Telework Enhancement Act, requires agencies to establish and implement a telework policy, determine the telework eligibility for all employees, notify employees of their telework eligibility, and provide telework training. The Department of Defense Telework policy and guide is the official agency policy for use by managers, supervisors, and employees. Components and commands may have additional local telework policy specific to their operational mission requirements.

"Having a management team that is familiar with telework and who could easily expand the program if needed to meet key organizational goals is critical during any emergency, but especially during a pandemic crisis. Even if an organization does not regularly telework because it does not fit their mission, they should still be prepared to work remotely during an emergency, or they will have a huge problem that could have been minimized with some foresight and minimal effort," said the DON Work/Life Program Manager.
