Travel Policy May 2015
Employees who have entered into a telework agreement (Form 5371 Telework Agreement and Checklist) are required to calculate mileage from their office, not the remote location, for travel on non-teleworking days. There will not be mileage reimbursed from the remote location to the office.
Employees who have entered into a telework agreement and do not have an assigned office space are required to calculate mileage from their remote location for travel on teleworking days. There will not be mileage reimbursed from their remote location to their supervisor’s office.
Both the 5370 and 5371 “Telework Forms” must be submitted with each travel claim. These forms must be current and accurate. For paper claims, write “Teleworker” at the top of the travel claim and highlight before submission.
Supervisors of employees who telework are required to maintain a copy of both the Form 5370 (“Request to Telework”) and the Form 5371 (“Telework Agreement and Checklist”) forms in the employee’s staff file. All forms must have appropriate signatures and be available in case of audit.
In eTravel, the current Telework forms must be attached to each online Travel Claim. To attach and upload the HR0802 and HR0803 documents, click the Docs/Receipts tab of the online Travel Claim.
