Mar-1756260-COVID19 BC.docx.pdf; Guidelines teleworking Final.docx.pdf;
as most of you know already, the Commission has activated the business continuity plans and requested
al staff with non-essential/critical functions to telework (= teleworking is mandatory!).
So please don't go to work at JRC if you still have done so in the past days!
The new Commission wide measures are active from 16 March to provisionally 26 March, and will be
revised, updated, extended if needed before.
Some have asked about teleworking rules. The attached note provided by HR explains how to handle telework
in the specific case of "force majeure". You find now many answers to your questions in the document (where
to telework in principle and deviations, respecting core hours and deviations, no need to insert telework in
sysper for the mandatory telework periods etc.). In case of doubts, don't hesitate to contact me!
(And forget about "Skype" mentioned in the document: at JRC we don't have Skype for business ... )
You are invited to read carefully the note below of our DG, as well as the two documents, giving further details
on the new measures and the implementation. Please follow all instructions given in the documents and in
any further communications.
And last but not least, stay at home and stay healthy!
