Telework is a flexible work arrangement where employees perform their job duties at an approved alternate worksite. Telework supports the following:
- Accomplishment of work
- Continuity of Operations Plans and emergency preparedness
- Reduction of traffic and emissions
- Government real estate cost savings
- Work/life balance
Employees are not entitled to telework. Employees should discuss telework eligibility and arrangements with their supervisors.
IHS is currently in a maximum telework operating posture due to COVID-19. When the IHS is not in a maximum telework posture, the IHS promotes telework as a work/life flexibility for managers and employees when possible.
