Comprehensive resource created to detail U.S. city, state, and federal legislation around work flexibility.

"We launched this policy page to help improve everyone’s access to information on the existing legislation and proposals around work flexibility,” said Emma Plumb, Director of 1 Million for Work Flexibility

1 Million for Work Flexibility (1MFWF), the first national initiative creating a collective voice in support of flexible workplaces, today announced the addition of its Work Flexibility Policy Page, a comprehensive resource providing details on proposed and enacted U.S. city, state, and federal legislation that addresses flexible work issues. The policy page cites legislation in thirty three states, as well as a federal section. The majority of states have work flexibility policies that apply to state workers. States that have (or include cities that have) farther-reaching workplace flexibility laws include California, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Washington.

“We launched this policy page to help improve everyone’s access to information on the existing legislation and proposals around work flexibility,” said Emma Plumb, the Director of 1 Million for Work Flexibility. “As the movement for work flexibility grows stronger and more companies adopt formal work flexibility policies, it’s critical that workers and businesses are better educated about the legal landscape of workplace flexibility, and better equipped to pursue their own agendas in moving work flexibility forward.”

1MFWF has covered several legislative efforts on its blog, particularly the activity in California, New Hampshire, and New York and on the federal level. This includes:

  • Berkeley Passes Right-to-Request Law
  • San Francisco Supervisor David Chiu on the Right to Request Flexibility
  • New Hampshire Becomes Second State with Right To Request Flexibility & Empowering a Stronger Granite State Economy
  • Families and Flexibility: New Yorkers Need a 21st Century Workplace
  • Whose Flexibility? New Legislation Addresses Need for Stable, Predictable Schedules

The policy page also captures information related to taxation issues around telecommuting. More information on this topic is available on the 1MFWF blog:
