Telework (also known as telecommuting) is an alternative work arrangement available to qualifying County employees to work from a remote workplace, such as one’s home or satellite office, rather than commuting to a designated worksite.

County Telework Program

This County recognizes the business, societal, and personal benefits available through a carefully planned and managed telework program. Telework, as a work program, enables the County to optimize resources and maintain employee productivity during County, State or Federal emergencies. Telework, as an element of transportation management programs, can also help the County support social responsibility and the State of California’s climate goals and ease traffic congestion in our communities.
