Telework and Dependent Care Guidance

OPM recently released the Telework and Dependent Care Guidance to Human Resource Directors.

The intent of this guidance on telework and dependent care is to provide Federal agencies with the appropriate tools to serve a contemporary workforce in a manner that meets the needs of employees while being responsive to agency mission requirements. The focus is on the use of telework as a workplace flexibility to support employees with caregiving responsibilities, especially minor children and/or adult dependents for whom an employee provides services essential to their health, well-being, and/or activities of daily living.

For more information, please visit Telework.gov’s Telework and Dependent Care webpage.
