DOD recognizes the importance of balancing the requirements of their DOD positions with the needs of its employees and their families. DOD offers:

    Many employees within the DOD are eligible to work from home based on the duties of their position. The number of days one is able to work from home is dependent upon the mission of the organization and needs of the team. The Department has found that telework options greatly supports the needs of its workforce to balance priorities at work and at home, reduces commute times, and decreases the office footprint. This flexibility has been widely used throughout the Department during the COVID-19 Pandemic to increase workplace safety as well as support the family needs of our employees during this unprecedented time.

Many types of schedules are available to choose from to accommodate the needs of the team and the supervisor.
