Title: Who are the teleworkers?

Excerpt: "Macquarie University academic Dr Yvette Blout says more needs to be done to spread the benefits of teleworking to all workers.

‘‘Many workers have been knocked back from teleworking because their bosses think they don’t have the qualities needed to be a teleworker,’’ she says. "Also, for people who were in the office, if there was something urgent that came up and the manger needed
something done, the people who were visible in the office got the extra work or got the interruption, not the people at home. If they wanted access to the teleworker, they felt they couldn't disturb them and not pick up the phone because they would be interrupting them."
