Telecommuting: The Rules, Dos and Don’ts, and a Sample Policy

About 3.9 million U.S. employees, representing 2.9% of the total workforce, work from home at least half of the time.

With a 115% increase in telecommuting between 2005 and 2015, telecommuting has become a widely accepted practice. Working from home, or telework, is best suited for jobs that require independent work, concentration, little face-to-face interaction, and measurable results.

During this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Telecommuting advantages and disadvantages
  • How to manage the legal risks
  • Guidelines for reasonable workplace accommodations
  • How to implement a policy
  • What to include in a policy
