Extension of Pilot Telecommuting Program
We are pleased to announce that the Pilot Telecommuting Program has been extended
from an end date of August 31, 2022 until December 31, 2022 (March 31, 2023 for PEF-represented employees), allowing employees to continue
to work remotely up to five days per pay period or up to 50% of their obligation if
they are part time. The terms of the pilot program can be found here. As previously, participation in the telecommuting program is based on operational
need as determined by their supervisor.
Next steps and notifications…
Upon approval by the supervisor employees currently approved to telecommute may continue
with their previously approved telecommuting schedule until December 31, 2022 (March
31, 2023 for PEF-represented employees). No new application is required. Please note that telecommuting arrangements can be changed with 30 days’ notice,
as outlined in the Pilot Telecommuting Program.
Employees wishing to newly apply to telecommute or seeking a modification in the originally
approved telecommuting request must complete a new application form.
An individual’s participation in the telecommuting arrangement must be feasible and
consistent with operational needs and may be modified, suspended or canceled at any
time by management with 30 calendar days’ advance written notice to the employee.
Employees who have an arrangement canceled or suspended may reapply six months from
the date of cancellation or suspension.
An employee may suspend or cancel their participation with 30 calendar days' advance
written notice to their immediate supervisor/manager unless the immediate supervisor/manager
agrees to a shorter notice period.
