High gas prices may keep employees at work, says a survey by employment law firm Jackson Lewis. More than half of the employees that participated in the poll said they’re eating lunch at their desks more these days instead of eating out or running personal errands. (The survey found lunchtime Internet use and personal e-mailing were on the rise.)
Employees, who cite high gas prices, also are asking for telework, job sharing and flexible scheduling arrangements more often, the survey shows.
