Yahoo bans telecommuting ahead of Telework Week

Yahoo bans telecommuting ahead of Telework Week

The trending workplace story late last month was Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's decision to discontinue the company's telecommuting option. The news was oddly timed, as last week was Telework Week, an annual initiative -- endorsed by Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md., author of the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 -- that encourages government agencies, businesses and individuals to pledge to telework.
