Telework music on hold continues

With the end of summer, recess comes to a close on Capitol Hill next week. And with Congress, the waiting returns for teleworkers.

So far, the House and the Senate have passed similar bills to expand telework across government.

The Senate had the lead, passing S. 707 in May, while the House took until July to pass H.R. 1722.

Now the reconciliation needs to begin before one final bill can be sent to the President for approval.

Both versions are designed to expand telework across government by assuming employees are eligible for telework instead of requiring them to prove it's a good fit for their position.
