In a bid to support employees with children and those taking care of elderly family members, Toyota Motor Corp. is planning to expand its work-at-home program from August, company sources said Thursday.

Under an existing program, telecommuting is allowed only for employees who are raising children under the age of one. But the automaker is set to expand the practice so that hundreds of its employees, mainly those raising children or looking after elderly parents, can work from home on a steady basis.
