What is telecommuting

Working from home or a distant location and communicating with the workplace through the Internet via computer and other electronic connections. As many jobs become more dependent on electronic processes, the physical location in which they take place has less relevance. A computer, modem, and telephone line can allow the work to take place in virtually any location. Telecommuting often is a viable alternative for people with Parkinson’s who have mobility restrictions that create difficulty in commuting or moving around in an office yet are otherwise capable of performing the tasks of their job. Sometimes telecommuting is the preferred workplace accommodation for an employer and a person who has Parkinson’s disease.
