What is telework?

The official definition of "telework" can be found in the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010: "[t]he term 'telework' or 'teleworking' refers to a work flexibility arrangement under which an employee performs the duties and responsibilities of such employee's position, and other authorized activities, from an approved worksite other than the location from which the employee would otherwise work."
In practice, "telework" is a work arrangement that allows an eligible employee to perform work, during any part of regular, paid hours, at an approved alternative worksite (e.g., home). This definition of telework includes what is generally referred to as remote work.

Pittsylvania County is proud to offer telework to eligible employees as a work-life balance benefit.
