Frequently Asked Questions Telework

Do I have to manage a teleworker differently than my in-office staff?

Supervisors should not manage the performance of teleworkers any differently than non-teleworking employees. However, telework may require some changes in communication techniques, and managers will need to be mindful of the ways they assign and reward work to ensure they are equitable for onsite and teleworking employees.  The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 requires that teleworkers and nonteleworkers be treated the same for purposes of performance appraisal; training, rewarding, reassigning, promoting, reducing in grade, retaining, and removing employees; work requirements; or other acts involving managerial discretion.
