The state supports telecommuting as part of business planning for emergencies, such as severe weather, natural disasters, and communicable disease.
The Office of State Personnel has implemented a telework policy that promotes telecommuting for state employees to address work inefficiencies such as absenteeism, morale, turnover, and competitiveness in hiring, as well as to meet budgetary and environmental considerations.
The Office of State Personnel has established rules so that teleworking may be offered by state agencies as a work option to full-time and part-time (half-time or more) permanent, probationary, trainee, and time-limited employees. Temporary, intermittent, and part-time (less than half-time) employees are not eligible. Participating employees must sign and adhere to a teleworking agreement.
