Frequently Asked Questions Telework

Does an employee have a right to telework?

No. Subject to agency telework policies, procedures, and any applicable collective bargaining agreements, management decides whether or not an employee may be permitted to telework.  A decision will depend on several factors such as whether or not the duties of the position are suitable for telework, or limitations based on certain types of disciplinary action as defined in the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010.


In addition, management has the right to review and end an employee's telework arrangement if it is no longer viable for business-based reasons, for example, if the employee's performance declines or fails to comply with the terms of the written agreement between the agency manager and the teleworking employee.
