Minnesota Law Requires State Workers to Telecommute
Boy, the folks in from the State that invented the stapler really get it when it comes to encouraging their state agencies to let their employees work from home. And they put their money where their mouth is. Under Minnesota Statute 1994 S. 15.95 sub 10, no state agency may propose or implement a capital investment plan for a state building unless it receives approval from the state for increasing telecommuting by employees who would normally work in the building. The only way the agency can get out of this is if it can prove that such a plan is not practicable.
More states should fasten themselves to Minnesota’s coat tails.
