Pentagon Guidance on Extension of Maximum Telework Flexibilities

U.S. Department of Defense

On Friday, the department released the memo for Extension of Maximum Telework Flexibilities extending the limited exception to policy provided by the USD memorandum on March 8, 2020.

The memo advises 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 non-work 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).

The memo for Extension of Maximum Telework Flexibilities can be found here.
