Alternative Work Arrangements (Telework)

In the event we experience a pandemic influenza outbreak (and/or as approved), this division will follow a comprehensive preparedness plan developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). To assist us in making sure we are able to fulfill our mission, while at the same time preparing and protecting our workforce, OPM provides policies on leave, pay, hiring, alternative work arrangements and other critical human resources issues which agencies can use should a pandemic influenza outbreak occur:
