Telework bill introduced to Parliament
My aim with the Telework Bill that I’ve talked about is to help bring increased employment opportunities and cash to our communities.
I introduced this Bill in Parliament on 24 September, with a notice of motion set for 6 August. The Bill would require the State Government to assess more than 300,000 public sector positions for suitability for teleworking.
The Bill is weighted towards working in the regions. It bans a person based in a metropolitan area working in a job earmarked for a regional area, but permits working a Sydney job in a regional area.
Telework - working online from home - is a huge opportunity to decentralise government departments and create employment opportunities in regional NSW.
