DMV FLEXIBLE WORK & RECOVERY AGREEMENT
A regional commitment to support our recovery from COVID-19.
A SAFE TRANSITION
COVID-19 presents special and shared challenges as our region gradually returns to work. Concerns will linger even after vaccines become available. Employers in the DMV are coming together in a first-of-its-kind initiative to accelerate regional recovery by enabling safe, healthy, and efficient commutes as our region returns to the workplace over the next 18 months.
The DMV Flexible Work & Recovery Agreement aims to reduce congestion on our region’s public transit systems and roadways to boost workforce quality of life as we transition back to work sites.
In July 2020, the COVID-19 Strategic Renewal Task Force approved a Flexible Work Schedules recommendation to support regional recovery from the pandemic.
The DMV Flexible Work & Recovery Agreement captures organizations’ commitment over the next 18 months to take action to support the aggregate reduction in peak-time commute demand by introducing, updating, and/or extending one or more options for alternative work arrangements (to the extent feasible and compatible with work delivery requirements) such as:
• Flexible work schedules
• Staggered work schedules
• Compressed work weeks
• Flexibility in work locations and spaces
