Eligibility for telework

The Department of Revenue identifies positions that are suitable for telework based on the job duties of each position. In addition to the position requirements, individual employees must have the ability to work independently and successfully communicate with customers, coworkers and their supervisor. You can view the guidelines the Department uses to determine eligibility below.

Some factors affecting employee eligibility for telework

The Department will consider several factors when making final decisions regarding telework. While the agency may consider a position suitable and an employee eligible, opportunities for telework are limited. Below are some of the factors the Department considers when making final telework decisions.

  • The ability to perform duties outside of the usual place of work.
  • The benefit to the agency.
  • The employee’s performance record, knowledge, skills, abilities, and work habits.
  • The availability of resources to provide on-going secure network access, communications, or other required equipment.
  • The work unit’s ability to provide essential services to customers.
  • The impact on work flow and other work unit employees.

Positions currently suitable for telework

The Department generally considers a position suitable for telework, unless the physical absence of the position would have an adverse impact on the work unit's productivity, reduce the service provided to customers, or unnecessarily raise the cost to taxpayers. The Department will continue to review this list and make updates as necessary. To view the positions the Department considers suitable for telework, review the Positions Eligible for Telework list.
