Deborah Hopkins

Course Description

FELTG’s flagship courses, such as UnCivil Servant, have empowered supervisors and their advisors to confidently handle the challenges that come with supervising federal employees.

But what if those employees are not in the physical workspace, and instead are working remotely, as most federal employees currently are (and most will likely be for the foreseeable future)? FELTG President and attorney at law Deborah Hopkins will address and provide guidance on handling employee conduct and performance issues during a pandemic.

Over the course of 75 minutes, Ms. Hopkins will address challenges such as remote employees, who:

  • Refuse to report to duty after the agency re-opens.
  • Misuse technology or violate time and attendance protocols.
  • Fail to perform their critical element(s) at an acceptable level.

Many employees are thriving under remote work, but others continue to struggle with performance. It’s imperative to agency mission that you use the right tools to swiftly and effectively address poor performance and misconduct, regardless of where the employee is doing – or NOT doing – the actual work.

Learning Objectives

  • Take disciplinary action against a teleworking employee.
