Not everyone's a fan of telework
Friday - 12/3/2010, 5:48pm EST
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said the recently passed Telework Enhancement Act (H.R. 1722) "only brings bureaucracy into agencies and doesn't reflect the message voters sent Congress and the president in the recent midterm elections," reports Federal Computer Week.
"This will be the first vote after the American people said no to government waste, fraud and abuse, government growth and government spending," he said.
Issa said the legislation doesn't guard against employees taking advantage of the lack of direct manager oversight and doesn't require agencies to prove how much money they're saving when they let employees work from home.
Additionally, Issa said the Act creates no new teleworking jobs.
