Looks like your bunny slippers and bath robe are going to get a bit more use now that the Telework Enhancement Act was passed overwhelmingly in the Senate last Thursday.
Ed O’Keefe, Federal Eye Columnist at the Washington Post, shared the news:
A bit more about it from O’Keefe:
The vote caps a years-long effort to secure Congressional approval of a program federal recruiters believe could help woo new government job applicants eager for flexible work schedules and options.
The measure requires federal agencies to develop policies allowing employees to work remotely unless their positions are specifically excluded (that means you, doctors, police officers, lab technicians, park rangers, etc.).
But some government managers remain skeptical of the program, citing an unwillingness to manage employees they literaly can’t see at the office.
So what’s your take?
Does this legislation have enough teeth
to (finally) make telework a reality?
Or are managers so resistant that
this law won’t even make a mark?
Eager to get your thoughts…
