Telework is a work arrangement that allows an employee to perform work, during any part of regular, paid hours, at an approved alternative worksite (e.g., home, telework center). It is an important tool for achieving a resilient and results-oriented workforce.

Completed agreements for all faculty and staff must be submitted with the training certificate to the Human Resources Office. For questions regarding Telework check out the resources below, or contact Employee Relations.
NOTE: All Full-time Telework Arrangements must be approved by the NPS President and that Full-time Telework Arrangements in another locality will result in a change in locality pay. Full-time telework requests must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the effective date of the agreement to allow proper approvals and avoid a debt for the employee.
