After two weeks of deliberation and analysis of agency resources, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has decided to cancel its second phase of furloughs.

In a July 2010 executive order, President Barack Obama pushed agencies to hire more people with disabilities, aiming for 100,000 workers by 2015. Agencies have made steady progress toward that goal. However that progress could be in jeopardy: Complaints alleging disability discrimination in federal hiring and appointments have ticked upward over the past five years, according to an analysis by the law firm Tully Rinckey.
Agencies considering allowing employees to use their own smartphones and other mobile devices on the job - known as bring-your-own-device (BYOD) - have a new toolkit at their disposal to ease the transition.

As of fiscal 2010, less than 1 percent of the federal workforce had a targeted disability.
