Telecommuting Agreement


Employers, offer your staff the ability to work from home and reduce commuting costs with this Employee Telecommuting Agreement.

  • The employee must work the hours set out in an agreed work schedule and must complete work assignments on a timely basis.
  • Pay, leave, and benefits will all be calculated on the same basis as if the employee was coming to work at the regular workplace.
  • The employee must report any hours during which the employee is unable to work, for instance due to illness, in the same manner as if the employee was attending work at the workplace.

  • The employee is responsible for any tax consequences, and for conforming with local zoning regulations.
  • The employee must maintain regular hours of work to ensure coverage by Worker's Compensation, and must report all work-related injuries as soon as possible.
