This is the July 28, 2020 hearing on "Modernizing Telework: Review of Private Sector Telework Policies During the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Pandemic," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management. From the Opening Statement of James Lankford: "In 1990, Congress passed its first piece of legislation directly related to an employee's ability to be able to work outside of their assigned duty station. The most recent and significant legislation affecting the Federal workforce and teleworking was the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, which set the current standards for Federal workforce requirements for telework. With so many changes in the world over the last 10 years, or in the case of just 2020, so many changes, period, this year, it makes sense to be able to take a look at the current telework practices to see what is working, what is not working for the Federal workforce, and to be able to learn the lessons of what is happening in the private sector. We have a responsibility to ensure Federal workforce strategies are relevant, cost-effective, and well thought out." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sean Morris, Lane Wilson, Michael Ly, and John Zanni.
