Civil Service Commission Issues Final Administrative Action in Telework Matter

The Civil Service Commission approved CSC Docket No. 2022-2243, establishing a pilot program to provide for a Model Telework Program for the State’s Executive Branch employees for a period of one year to commence on July 1, 2022.

The Civil Service Commission has approved CSC Docket No. 2022-2243, establishing a pilot program to provide for a Model Telework Program for the State’s Executive Branch employees for a period of one year to commence on July 1, 2022. Each department, after consultation with its bargaining units, must submit a plan to the CSC by June 1. Eligible employees would be able to work remotely no more than 2 days a week. In addition, employees would be required to engage in an eligibility application process and complete telework training. Employees who handle in-person services with the public are not eligible.  
  
 The Commission docket provided information on model telework guidelines, telework provisions, eligibility, data security, performance evaluation, equity and accessibility, and balancing work and family needs.
  
 While this program as outlined is only available to the state’s executive branch employees, we encourage you to review it with your municipal administrator should program eligibility expand in the future.
