The workplace has been transformed radically by alternative work arrangements that allow workers to complete their job assignments in a location away from the traditional office. The typical alternative work location is the worker's home or a remote worksite. This alternative work is new concept for Malaysian workers especially in the education industry in Pahang. Telecommuting by definition is as way of working at home with telecommunications, phone, fax, and computer between office and home. It is the ability to connect computers to one another by modem or network and communications lines to provide online information access, such as the use of pocket pagers, portable computers, fax machines, and various phone and network services to conduct business, Williams, et al., (1999).
