Extension of Maximum Telework Flexibilities

This memorandum extends the exception to DoD telework policy provided in reference (a). DoD Components are granted a limited exception to policy in Enclosure 3, paragraph 3.j.(2) of reference (b), through June 30, 2021. During this time, DoD Components may allow civilian employees to telework during an emergency ( e.g., continuity of operations event, office closure due to adverse or inclement weather, or pandemic health crisis) with a child or other persons requiring care or supervision present at home. Employees must still account for work and nonwork hours during their tours of duty and take appropriate leave (paid or unpaid) to account for time spent away from normal work-related duties (e.g., to care for a child or dependent).

For more information, my point of contact is Ms. Tai wanna Smith, Director, Benefits, Wage & Nonappropriated Fund Policy, Defense Civilian Personnel Advisory Services, whom you may reach at (571) 372-1642 or taiwanna.r.smith.civ@mail.mil
