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 the 24th of September, with the notice of motion set for the 6th of 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.
