Telework

Prince George’s County Telework Arrangement Program (TAP)

TAP is one of the County’s Alternative Work Arrangements (AWA) that allows for paid employment performed away from the traditional office, depending on the nature of the job. Participation is voluntary and subject to management approval. Eligible employees are encouraged to participate in TAP to the maximum extent possible to support productivity and performance.

All County employees are eligible for TAP except those who:  

  1. Handle secure materials that cannot be physically removed from the onsite workplace
  2. Perform work that can only be done at the onsite workplace
  3. Received a summary performance rating below “Needs Improvement” within the last performance cycle
  4. Or received disciplinary action within the last year

Complete the Required TAP Training

To apply for TAP, employees must complete the required training in the County LMS. Details on accessing and completing telework training can be found on the Telework Training page

Apply for the Program

All County employees who telework must have an approved TAP Agreement in place. The graphic below outlines the process for establishing a TAP Agreement (click the image to enlarge).
