Got Kids

Posted By: Adeel Lari on 9/22/2009


Although this child can’t telework, there’s no good reason why employees can’t.

Much like telework.gov, we agree that telework is not a substitute for child care. However, telework can certainly help those with child or other dependent care needs.

For instance:

  • Time saved commuting can be spent with family members.
  • Flexibility of being closer to home may enable employees to take LESS work time off for activities like doctor’s visits and school programs.
  • An older child or elderly relative may also be at home with a teleworker as long as they are independently pursuing their own activities.

 Those are just a few reasons. What are yours?

    • - for reason A & B - Reduce driving time to work two hours a day, 10 hours a week, & 40 hours a month, by simply allowing me to just come to work after the morning traffic is over.
