The Los Angeles County Telework Program (CTP) is an effective workplace option that contributes to improving employee productivity and complies with South Coast Air Quality Management District Rule 2202 to help the County achieve regional air quality goals by eliminating one vehicle from the roads each day an employee teleworks. Telework under the CTP is a management approved arrangement allowing an employee to perform their work duties during any part of their regularly scheduled hours at an approved alternative worksite. The Board of Supervisors first established the CTP in September 1989, and all participants must comply with the Board of Supervisors’ Telework Policy.

In support of the CTP, the Department of Human Resources (DHR) provides training for teleworkers and telemanagers via the DHR Workforce and Employee Development website. Each online training course is 30 minutes in length and is  accompanied with Telework Procedures Manual. Telework forms may be used as-is by Departments or may be used as a template to design Department-specific materials.

All participants must complete telework training and complete the Telework Agreement Form prior to beginning a telework assignment. As of January 2, 2019, all teleworker and telemanager training taken before or after this date does not expire and is not required to be retaken at a set interval.

Teleworkers must use the Telework Time Codes (found in Appendix 5 of the Telework Procedures Manual) for each day they participate in the Program. A 5-minute telework time code training on the DHR Workforce and Employee Development website is required to be completed by teleworkers every six months. For further information about the Telework Program, please contact the DHR Workplace Programs Division at
