Illinois Homeworkers/ Telecommuting: What you need to know

The Voluntary Employee Commute Options Emission Reduction Credit Act provides certain employers the opportunity to implement voluntary employee commute programs. These programs enable employers to obtain emissions reductions that are creditable toward the level of emissions reductions required under the federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 for the post-1996 period. The Act covers employers in the Chicago ozone nonattaintment area who operate stationary sources. These employers may implement voluntary programs to encourage the use of carpooling, mass transit, vanpooling, telecommuting, compressed work workweeks, clean fuel vehicles, and other measures that either reduce the number of commuting trips by their employees or reduce the emissions associated with those commuting trips so that they create emissions reduction credits (625 ILCS 33/1 et. seq.). Employers can obtain more information on voluntary commute programs from the Department of Transportation.
