Telework approval is at the sole discretion of the agency head and is not subject to appeal or grievance. Telework is not an expressed or implied employee right or benefit; rather, it is a staffing and work arrangement at the sole discretion of management.

Welcome to the Telework Wyoming official webpage for State of Wyoming employees. The Wyoming Department of Administration & Information (A&I), Human Resources Division, in collaboration with multiple state agencies, developed the new Telework Wyoming policy to modernize, streamline and update the State of Wyoming telework process. This webpage was established to provide easy access to information on the telework policy, eligibility, approval process, instructions for completing an agreement, training for both employees and supervisors as well as other pertinent information.

Telework is not necessarily a suitable work-arrangement for everyone. Certain positions can be eligible for telework, as well as certain employees. It is not an employee benefit or right. Telework remains at the sole discretion of management. Individual agencies decide how many employees will telework and what types of telework (full-time, part-time, intermittent or temporary) is appropriate for their employees.


Please follow the steps below if you or your supervisor are interested in implementing a Telework Agreement.
