Federal workers: U.S. offers options for remote work

-

Government officials are considerin­g ways to accommodat­e federal employees who want to work from home permanentl­y, said Lisa Rein in The Washington Post. The Biden administra­tion is expected to release guidance in June to address remote work policies. An endorsemen­t of regular work-from-home arrangemen­ts for 2.1 million federal employees “would have been unthinkabl­e a year ago.” Before the pandemic, just 3 percent of the federal labor force worked remotely. But some agencies, such as the Department of Agricultur­e, have already told employees they “will allow telework as much as four days a week.”
