Even telework has its limits
Monday - 11/22/2010, 5:03am EST
What you might not have heard so much about are some of the limitations the act places on telework.
Aside from the obvious jobs like air traffic controllers, most law enforcement and even custodial workers that can't be done at home, there are a few other conditions to teleworking.
First of all, employees have to attend training before being considered to be eligible.
Employees who have been officially disciplined for having five or more unexcused absences a year are blocked from participating in the program.
And then there's the very little discussed porn provision: if an employee has been officially disciplined for "viewing, downloading, or exchanging pornography, including child pornography, on a Federal Government computer or while performing official Federal Government duties," there's no telework for them.
It's good to know there are limits.
