The administration's new memo instructs agencies to secure the information, programs and networks used by employees working outside the office, and to prevent employees from using government resources to access porn.
Under the Telework Enhancement Act, agencies were supposed to have told their employees by Tuesday whether they were allowed to telework. OPM said telework coordinators say they have processes in place to meet the law's requirements. A new survey finds the law having an impact on telecommuting across the government.
Don't let the paperwork scare you off.
OPM reports a rise in teleworking from 2008 - 2009. The survey shows satisfaction among feds who do telework, but reveals barriers that are keeping others from doing so. One Congressman hopes the new law will turn interest in telework into practice.
