TPEA testifies as sole employee group in favor of reasonable work-from-home measures

May 31, 2022
Before the Senate Business and Commerce Committee this week, TPEA testified from the "perspective of state employees working from alternate work sites." The committee heard testimonies regarding the interim charge that requires legislators to "Study where state employees are located and the benefits and drawbacks of remote working. Study and make recommendations for establishing uniform statewide standards for remote work." TPEA, which was the only employee advocacy group present to testify on the interim charge, emphasized that despite many recent challenges, state employees "have carried through while primarily working from home, [and] they have done so with no noticeable drop in performance."
