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, but 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 and 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, but is at the sole discretion of management. Individual agencies decide how many employees will be teleworking and what types of telework (full-time, part-time, intermittently or temporarily) their employees will participate in.

Step 1: Inquire
Interested in finding out if telework is an option for you? Talk to your supervisor first!
Already been assigned to telework? Review the Telework Policy in Step 2 and then skip to Step 5.
Step 2: Telework Policy
Once your supervisor is aware of your interest in teleworking, all individuals review the State of Wyoming Executive Branch Telework Policy found below.
Step 3: Agency Management Evaluation/Decision
The employee's agency management team will evaluate the inquiry for telework based on the agency's criteria:
No, the employee and/or job criteria are not met and the agency management team will not move forward with telework, go to Step 4.
Yes, the employee and job criteria are met and the agency management team will move forward with telework, skip to Step 5.
Agency Management can use the flow-charts below to help determine eligibility.
Step 4: Denied Inquiry
If the inquiry is denied:
The supervisor meets with the employee to discuss the reason(s) why the employee or job criteria do not meet the telework selection criteria.
The employee and supervisor can explore alternatives to telework, if any are available.
Step 5: Approved Inquiry
If the inquiry is approved:
The supervisor contacts an HRD representative to assign the employee REQUIRED Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) training. Certificates for all required courses must be saved for agreement purposes. Need help? How to Download Your Telework Security Certificate
ETS will also contact you with documentation to complete.
The supervisor and employee explore the Telework Toolkit for training, best practices, and important resources. Telework Wyoming training resources include training courses that MAY BE REQUIRED by agency management.
Step 6: Documentation
The employee gathers documents to be uploaded, by the supervisor, to the PMI system prior to being assigned a Telework Agreement. (Supervisors: Watch the video to the right and check out the tip sheet below for more information on how to upload documents.)

Once all documents are uploaded to the PMI system, the supervisor notifies their HRD representative to assign a Telework Agreement.
If there is an update to any of the telework-related documents, the employee will prepare them and give them to the supervisor for upload into the PMI system.

Step 7: Telework Agreement
The Telework Agreement is processed through the PMI system. You can see a sample of the agreement by clicking on the link below. Employees will receive an email notification when the agreement has been assigned to them.
Employee completes the Telework Agreement
Supervisor reviews the employee’s entries, enters comments on expectations and makes any required adjustments to employee entries
Supervisor meets with the employee to discuss, then submits the agreement to HRD representative for review
Employee signs off on Telework Agreement
Supervisor signs off on Telework Agreement
A copy of the final agreement may be printed directly from the PMI system, if necessary.
Please note: AWEC, temporary employees, and board executive directors will not complete Telework Agreements in the PMI system. Instead, they will complete a manual PDF agreement provided by their HRD representative.
