New Legislation Could Help Military Spouses Find Remote Work

The Military Spouse Employment Act, co-sponsored by Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, would allow military spouses to build a remote work career through federal agencies while they move with their spouses. The bill, which unanimously passed in the Senate but has not yet been considered by the House, would simplify the federal remote work application process for military spouses where such accommodations are feasible. This streamlined application process already exists for in-person federal jobs but not for remote ones. "Instead of being able to apply to two or three agencies that may be near the base where their spouses are, it is a sign they can apply to all the agencies in the federal government scattered throughout the United States," said King. "It just vastly increases their options."
