Remote work opportunities are no longer a wish for many employees, but an expectation. Even as agencies transition staff back to the workplace, a good deal of remote work remains. And so does the big problem: Telework isn’t for everyone.

It’s likely that you have employees who struggle whether they’re at home or in an office. Poor performance and misconduct can never be overlooked. 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. Using the UnCivil Servant framework, FELTG President and attorney at law Deborah Hopkins addresses and provides guidance on handling employee conduct and performance issues, regardless of their work location.

Over the course of 90 minutes, Ms. Hopkins addresses challenges such as remote employees, who:

  • Misuse technology or violate time and attendance protocols.
  • Fail to perform their critical element(s) at an acceptable level.
  • Request telework as a Reasonable Accommodation.

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.

Attendees learn how to:

  • Take disciplinary action against a teleworking employee.
  • Determine whether you have enough evidence that a non-performer should be put on a demonstration period during emergency telework.
  • Manage a demonstration period remotely.
