North Dakota Telecommuting: What you need to know

With the goals of maximizing team member flexibility and off-site work locations, the state Office of Budget and Management's Human Resource Management Services permits telecommuting for all or part of the regular workweek for eligible positions and employees with several options, including home, shared office/hoteling, and mobile/on-the-go approaches. The Office also addresses temporary telecommuting by state workers in its emergency/inclement weather and pandemic disease plans and is used as a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The policies anticipate a teleworking agreement with the employer. The state provides policies, guidelines, and other resources at www.omb.nd.gov.
