Other alternative work options

Please describe any other alternative work arrangements:

Jones Day has over 30 years of experience with lawyers working a wide range of alternative schedules, and while we do not track the numbers, we know that at any given time, there are lawyers around the Firm working alternative schedules. These alternative arrangements are made after consultation with practice group leaders and with the clients' needs and interests in mind. Our lawyers are comfortable using alternative arrangements and tracks because of the number of role models available whose experience demonstrates that an alternative schedule need not interfere with a lawyer's development and success in the Firm, and because the Firm's state of the art technology and our technical support team enable our lawyers to work effectively from any location, thus making it easier to get work done from non-office locations when the need arises.
