New York Daily News Not enough NYC municipal workers work from home, says union head by Michael Gartland
The highest hurdle to telecommuting is securing sensitive city data, said Garrido, who complained the problem has been foreseeable for years and evidenced in the city’s failure to adopt telecommuting rules he’s been pushing for more than a decade.
City Councilman Ben Kallos, who has worked as a software developer, said telecommuting and data security are “very easy to set up.”
“Every corporation in America does this. Doctors do this. It is very easy and normal to do,” he said. “I’m concerned about city workers who could be working from home and are being forced to come in.”
