9.1.1 During an emergency situation, including a Pandemic Health Crisis, the telework program will play a vital role for the Agency's COOP by preserving essential Agency, Headquarters, and/or Center functions and providing an option for employees to continue working during times when they may be prevented from reporting to their regular worksite.
9.1.2 COOP supersedes telework policy during an emergency situation. Supervisors may direct employees to telework during a COOP or pandemic health crisis situation. Telework agreements, mandatory training, and other telework policy requirements are not required in these situations.
9.1.3 An employee directed to telework during a COOP or pandemic health crisis situation does not imply that the employee is eligible for participation during nonemergency periods.
9.2.1 One of the major goals of the telework program is to improve continuity of operations during emergency situations that cause a disruption of Government operations, including inclement weather or safety-related events.
9.2.2 Telework-ready employees (i.e., employees on approved telework agreements) are expected to be prepared to work from home during an anticipated weather/safety event and will not be granted weather/safety administrative leave when a weather or safety event can be reasonably anticipated in accordance with 5 CFR pt. 630, subpt. P.
9.2.3 Authorized management officials may grant weather/safety leave to telework-ready employees only when, in the management official's judgement, the event could not be reasonably anticipated or if the supervisor determines that a weather/safety event directly impacts the employee's ability to perform work at the approved alternate worksite.
