EMPLOYEES WORKING REMOTELY
Employers frequently allow employees to work remotely or from home. However, allowing employees to telecommute is not always possible or some employees will take advantage of the arrangement. Therefore, employers may want to consider entering into a written telecommuting agreement with their employees. This agreement should contain the specifics of the telecommuting arrangement such as:
- Which positions are eligible for telecommuting;
- How to request a telecommuting arrangement;
- Any restrictions on telecommuting, for instance, if the employer only allows telecommuting a few days each week; and
- A clear statement that employees who telecommute continue to be responsible for complying with all employer policies and procedures.
In today’s marketplace, allowing employees to work from anywhere helps attract and retain employees. By allowing employees the flexibility to work from home while establishing policies and procedure you create a professional atmosphere that is supportive of employees reaching their full potential while also meeting your company’s needs.
