County of Los Angeles Telework Program

Welcome to the Los Angeles County Telework Program (CTP). This program represents an innovative workplace option which continues to contribute to the improvement of work quality, increased productivity, and achievement of air quality and traffic reduction goals.  The Telework program embraces the three Countywide Strategic plan goals.

  • Operational Effectiveness/Fiscal Sustainability
  • Community Support and Responsiveness
  • Integrated Services Delivery

The County’s Telework Program has evolved with the support of new technology; however, it continues to focus primarily on home-based telework and short-term telework when prompted by a natural disaster or personal injury.

Currently, over 5,000 County employees telework an average of 1.4 days a week. By participating in the Telework Program two days a week, employees save at least an average minimum of $1066.68 dollars a year in gasoline costs which does not include car maintenance and personal expenses.  By taking more cars off the road, County employees have helped remove over 5832 tons of air pollutants annually!

The Telework Program demonstrates the County’s commitment to clean air and the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) Rule 2202 regulations by eliminating one vehicle from the roads each day an employee teleworks. Telework benefits the County as an employer through SCAQMD Rule 2202 commuter credits when the County eliminates at least 50 percent of the normal commute distance from an employee’s home to work.

In support of this program, the Department of Human Resources provides online  telework training for teleworkers and telemanagers. For more information about the County’s Telework Program, please contact us at
