King County, WA Extends Mandatory Telecommuting Through Labor Day

As of May 21st, King County Executive Dow Constantine has extended mandatory telecommuting for all Executive-level employees through Labor Day, September 7th, except when a physical presence is inherently unavoidable, such as in the cases of First Responders and Mission-critical employees. Otherwise, all other Executive Branch employees are bound by the new order.

From the King County Employees Website:

“[…] King County is now mandating telecommuting for those Executive Branch employees whose work allows for it, with supervisor approval, through Monday, Sept. 7, except where there is an operational need to physically return to the workplace. Managers and supervisors must work with their employees to permit telecommuting wherever possible and be creative to maximize telecommuting. Employees are permitted to telecommute with children in the home. The expectation of productive work remains.”

Executive Branch departments subject to this guidance include the following:

* Superior Court
* District Court
* Prosecuting Attorney’s Office
* King County Council
* Department of Assessments
* Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention
* Department of Executive Services
* Department of Community and Human Services
* Department of Human Resources
* Department of Judicial Administration
* Department of Local Services
* Metro Transit Department
* Department of Natural Resources and Park
* Department of Public Defense
* Department of Public Health
* Executive Department
* King County Elections
* King County Sheriff’s Office
