3.1.1 All civil-service employees are eligible to participate in the telework program with the following exceptions:
a. The position requires regular and recurring handling of classified materials.
Note: employees whose duties primarily involve classified materials may telework to perform non-classified work assignments or training.
b. The employee performs onsite activities on a daily basis that cannot be conducted at an alternative worksite.
c. The employee has been officially disciplined for absence without leave exceeding five days in a calendar year.
d. The employee has been officially disciplined for violations of subpart G of the Standards of Ethical Conduct of Employees of the Executive Branch for reviewing, downloading, or exchanging pornography, including child pornography, on a Federal Government computer or while performing official Federal Government duties.
3.1.2 Although the above criteria establish when an employee is eligible to participate in the telework program, eligibility does not equate to an entitlement for telework or remote work. Employee's participation is voluntary and subject to supervisory approval. A supervisor may deny an eligible employee's request for mission-related reasons and when it is in the best interest of the organization, e.g., based on staffing needs.
3.1.3 Prior to approving or denying telework for the below, supervisors must contact the Servicing HR Office to coordinate whether telework will best support the organization for:
a. Employees who have been disciplined for actions not covered by 3.1.1.
b. Supervisors who have concerns about an employee's performance.
