The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-292) was enacted on December 9, 2010 and was a significant milestone in the history of Federal telework.  The Act is a key factor in the Federal Government's ability to achieve greater flexibility in managing its workforce through the use of telework. Speaking at the March 31, 2010 White House Forum on Workplace Flexibility, President Barack Obama declared “work is what you do, not where you do it” emphasizing the integral role of telework in achieving flexible, resilient workplaces. We recognize telework as a valuable tool for getting work done. Telework provides cost savings to the agency through space savings, increased recruitment and retention, and enhanced efficiency.  It also provides an increased opportunity for work flexibility and expanded work life balance for participating employees.
