Among bills recently introduced in Congress was HR-7835, the latest in a series of bills seeking to have federal agencies revert to pre-pandemic policies on telework until, in the words of sponsors, they “submit to Congress studies detailing how pandemic-era telework levels impacted their mission” and on how to “avoid the adverse effects of remote work.”
“The federal government’s expansion of telework during the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted Americans across the country and continues to affect federal agency missions. Using the pandemic experience as an excuse, the Biden administration intends to permanently expand telework for federal employees with no concern for the possible impacts on agency performance,” they said.
