Managing Telecommuting Employees: Policies and Best Practices

January 29

Make sure you understand the regulatory requirements and the related risks and potential liabilities that go along with at-home employee work arrangements.

Telecommuting can present real opportunities for workers when time, distance, health issues or family obligations make traditional commuting difficult or impossible. For companies, offering a telecommuting option may not only be required by law in certain situations, but can also mean real savings on office space. But employers often donít realize the range of legal and other issues that must be considered when creating a virtual workplace. Careful planning and proactive management are key to making a telecommuting program a success. This topic will provide you with an understanding of the issues involved and offer practical tools and solutions to address them in your workplace.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify risks associated with telecommuting
  • You will be able to determine who could fit well in a telecommuting position
  • You will be able to recognize when a telecommuting is a good option for a position
  • You will be able to identify laws relating to telecommunicating employees
