What is Included in a Remote Work policy?
A remote work policy includes an employer’s rules and regulations surrounding work from home or remote work arrangements. Some sections that you can expect in a remote work policy include the following: usage of personal or “BYOD” devices, usage of unknown internet networks, communication with employer while working from home, among a host of other things. Every remote work policy is different based upon the employer and nature of work. Contact our Toronto employers for an assessment of your remote work policies.
How can a Remote Work Policy Protect my Business?
A remote work policy can protect your business in many ways. If you determine that a worker has failed to perform his or her duties while working from home, you may rely upon the remote work policy to terminate, suspend, or otherwise discipline the worker. Further, a remote work policy can be used to protect you in the event that a security breach occurs as a result of a remote worker.
