Lunch and Learn: Telework for medical reason or reasonable accommodation

Main Content

Telework Success and Reasonable Accommodations Discussion

As we move towards becoming a mobile workforce, we are not only changing the way we work, we are also changing the tools needed to make employees more proficient and responsive while teleworking. Successful telework programs are those that allow employees to move seamlessly beyond the traditional office environment and into a variety of flexible work settings in order to achieve their mission.  

The Office of the Chief Component Human Capital Officer is committed to maintaining a successful telework program and providing employees with the tools needed to ensure telework success while providing pertinent program information on a regular basis. As a part of our commitment to Telework success, we are hosting a “Reasonable Accommodations Consideration” Lunch and Learn on Thursday, June 20, from 12:30 -1:30 p.m. at 1201 Maryland Ave SW (the Portals) in room 310.

Conference Bridge Number:  1-800-320-4330

Conference Bridge PIN:  559658

Session topics will include:  

  • Examples of working from home for medical reasons under the Telework Program Policy
  • Working from home as a Reasonable Accommodation
  • Required forms

Please join us for this interactive session as we discuss Telework Success and Reasonable Accommodations. If you have any questions, please contact FEMA-HC-WorklifePrograms@fema.dhs.gov.
