The U.S. Department Agriculture this week notified its employees that it is extending the timeframe by an extra 30 days for some employees to adapt to new telework changes, according to a recent news report.
The report notes an internal memo to employees that pushes back the implementation date of a new policy that reduces the number of days that employees can work remotely in order to give them additional time to update their transit benefits and submit new telework agreements.
The directive requiring employees to be in the office four days per week is still in effect, but those with "extenuating circumstances" may discuss the situation with their supervisors who have authority to approve additional telework days, according to the report.
