HR's Guide to Remote Work

The COVID-19 crisis has brought major changes to the U.S. workforce. Many employers have transistioned their workforces to remote work. Now, employees can work from anywhere with an Internet connection. Many employees have taken advantage of the flexibility by investing in home office spaces, moving to different states, and even traveling the country. While there are advantages to remote work for both employers and employees, there are also potential problems. 


This toolkit will help you navigate those issues whether you are starting a remote work program from scratch or reviewing and updating your existing program.


Our handy resources will help you audit your remote work program and ensure you are following best practices to keep compliant and ensure a fair policy is being applied across the board. This toolkit includes:


  • Legal Points to Consider | From the FLSA and the FMLA to ADA and OSHA compliance, workers' compensation, taxes, I-9s, and beyond, discover how to ensure your remote work policy is compliant with all manner of legal concerns.
  • Policy Concerns | Explore remote work policy do's and don'ts! Who is eligible to work from home and when? How should you handle expectations for time management, performance, equipment use, and more? Learn how to craft a policy that covers all the bases.
  • Posting Requirements | After you've solidified your remote work policy, how do you communicate that to your workforce? Uncover DOL guidance on informing workers of the specifics to keep everyone in the loop.
  • Hostile Work Environment Claims | An increase in remote work has accelerated the resurgences of hostile environment claims. How does this impact how you investigate and defend them? And how can you modify your policies and train to prevent wrongful conduct, regardless of location? Explore best practices for mitigating these tricky circumstances.
  • Work Location Requirements | Remote work has enabled employees to work from wherever they have access to an Internet connection, but what legal questions does this bring into play? It's time to consider a range of complexities you may never have previously considered.
  • Cybersecurity | The office is likely a more secure environment than an employee’s home, so it’s crucial employees know how to work safely in the new business “normal.” Discover best practices to keep your organization safe and secure, regardless of employees' physical locations.


Creating and administering a remote work policy in today's climate requires in-depth planning and consideration. Use this toolkit to help your company cover all its bases and address remote work concerns fairly and consistently from all angles.
