The Air District's Remote Work Policy Clearinghouse web page includes a complete remote work toolkit, featuring resources and guidance, model teleworking agreements, and information on equity considerations and ergonomics.

Spare the Air Status

Remote work allows employees that have the flexibility to do so to work offsite, usually from their homes. Extending remote work options for employees after the COVID-19 shutdown orders are lifted can improve traffic congestion, help maintain our air quality progress, reduce employer and employee costs, and mitigate climate impacts.

The Air District's Remote Work Policy Clearinghouse web page includes information on the mobility, air quality, and health benefits of remote work for elected officials, private businesses, and public agencies.

Offering a formalized remote work policy can be mutually beneficial to both employees and employers. These benefits include:

  • Cleaner air and reduced climate impacts
  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Saves money and time spent in traffic
  • Improved employee recruitment, retention, and productivity
  • Money saved on commercial real estate and parking facilities
  • Enhanced employee wellness and work-life balance
  • Enhanced opportunities for persons with disabilities
  • Resiliency - provides a blueprint to continue business during a crisis
