The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 was signed into law by President Obama yesterday. In a statement by the Press Secretary for the White House, the new law, “requires Federal agencies to establish policies allowing certain employees to work remotely.”
Telework, or telworking, is defined as “a work flexibility arrangement under which an employee performs the duties and responsibilities of such employee’s position, and other authorized activities, from an approved worksite other than the location from which the employee would otherwise work,” by the law.
The Senate had passed the bill in September, and the House did the same late last month.
