The employee’s supervisor will determine if a position is appropriate for telecommuting arrangement.
Positions that require an employee to work frequently with specific equipment or interact in person with the public may not be well-suited for telecommuting.
Is Telecommuting Right for Business Continuity?
Supervisors will also need to consider the role of the individual in a particular position. If a supervisor decides to pursue a telecommuting arrangement with an employee, he or she needs to review expectations for working in an alternate location. Additionally, supervisors need to discuss how work is to be completed and reviewed as well how communication will occur between the employee, the supervisor, and coworkers.
Employees that need advice and guidance on establishing a telecommuting arrangement should consult with their respective HR Coordinator.
