Frequently Asked Questions Telework

Am I eligible to telework?

Eligibility criteria are outlined by agencies in their telework policies and collective bargaining agreements .  In fact, the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 (Act) requires each agency to determine eligibility for its employees.  You should have been notified by your agency of your eligibility status.  If you are unsure or require additional information, you can review your agency policy and have your questions answered by contacting your agency Telework Managing Officer.

You may be eligible to telework if your job duties are partly or wholly portable, meaning that you can do work offsite without workflow or security concerns. In addition, your performance will be considered, along with other factors you agency deems appropriate to ensure that telework does not diminish employee performance or agency operations.  .Also, the Act specifies certain limitations related to eligibility and participation that agencies must take into account when making these determinations.
