How much of the work is devoted to personal contact with other agencies, the public or internal staff? Can this contact be structured to allow communication by phone or computer or grouped in non-telework days, or can alternatives be put in place to provide this contact on telework days? A good telework program facilitates limited temporary obligations, increases the state`s ability to respond to emergencies, strengthens the effective use of new technologies in the public service, and improves the work ethic of staff, increasing work efficiency. For agencies that do not currently have a formal telework program, this document can be used as a model to create a specific program. This pilot program is designed to help agencies implement a comprehensive and formal program and meet the requirements of the state and bargaining units. This model program (guidelines and procedures), which is used as a model, has been reviewed by both the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) and negotiating groups for use by public authorities in the development of a telework program. Changes to the proposal, which are not ministerial, must be approved by the Agency`s negotiating groups and calHR. The Statute orders agencies to review their activities and implement telework programs in areas where they have identified telework as both practical and useful. Each agency is responsible for the management and operation of its telework program. The generally low additional costs associated with setting up and maintaining a telework program are borne by the Agency. Is the individual already working on information tasks such as thinking, planning, coordination, writing, reading, analytics, teleconferencing, computer programming, word processing or data entry? Can the tasks that can be completed be grouped and programmed for telework days? Can staff meetings and conferences be grouped and scheduled for non-teleworked days or in some other way (e.g., teleconferences. B)? Note: Agencies with ongoing but informal telework programs are encouraged to formalize these programmes. Agencies participating in the state telework program are responsible for setting their own specific program guidelines and procedures. Telework must be adapted to the environment in which it is operated. It is the policy of the State of California to promote the use of telework as a management work option.

Chapter 1389 Statutes of 1990 (AB 2963 – Klehs), which incorporates sections 14200-14203 into the California government code, authorized public authorities, boards of directors and commissions (agency), telework programs as part of transportation management programs. As is the case today, planned and managed telework is a viable work option for managers, employees and clients in the State of California. Benefits Changes to work schedules or temporary telework assignments may be made at the discretion of a department head to meet management requirements or to meet an employee`s wishes (for example. B, convalescence, parental leave, etc.). Agency programs differ, so their telework programs may be different.
