Telework Program Update

Telework is an important tool for achieving a resilient and results-oriented workforce. The Telework Program has had some recent changes. Please refer to the HRM Update that was sent out Forest Service wide on July 18.  

USDA has authorized eligible employees to telework up to 12 hours per week with supervisor approval. Supervisors are now responsible for re-initiating the Telework Agreement eForm, Part II is for employees to complete. Supervisors must complete the eForm for their employees by September 30, 2019, with full agency compliance by October 31, 2019.  

Details regarding the implementation of the new telework forms, change in the number of telework hours per week, and updated processes are provided in upcoming telework webinars – see the HRM Update for a schedule of upcoming webinars.
