Telework FAQs

Managers

  • Each individual agency has its own policies and procedures that determine how its employees may apply for a telework arrangement.   In general, most employees submit their telework application to their immediate supervisor.  For additional information, please refer to your agency telework policy, contact your agency telework coordinator, or visit your agency HR Department.

  • Sometimes there may be instances in which both the employee and manager have made a good faith effort to make a telework arrangement work without success.  Both the teleworker and the supervisor should understand that if telework does not work out for an individual, it does not in any way reflect on that individual's ability to perform his/her job.  Your telework agreement should include a clause stating either the manager or the employee may terminate the telework agreement for operational or performance issues.  For more information about your agency’s policy for terminating telework agreements, please consult your agency telework policy or agency telework coordinator.

  • It depends on the provisions the agency chooses to use in taking the performance-based action. If the agency uses the appraisal provisions, an opportunity period must be provided. If the agency uses the adverse action provisions, there is no specific requirement for an opportunity period.
