Making a Work from Home Agreement
In light of COVID-19, many states have implemented shelter-in-place orders to maintain social distancing. Complying with these orders, numerous companies are allowing employees to telecommute (i.e. work from home, working remotely, etc.).
Allowing an employee to work remotely can be a permanent or temporary agreement between an employer and their employees. Employers can use this agreement to establish expectations and outline an employee's responsibilities while he/she is remotely working.
If you have employment law questions related to COVID-19, ask a lawyer or find essential documents for free in our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Legal Center.
Use the Work from Home Agreement document if:
This agreement will include details such as the duration of the work from home period, employee responsibilities, pay and attendance, etc. When the agreement is in its final form, an employer can e-sign the document and send it to an employee for a return e-signature. If desirable, an employer may also print, date and sign the agreement and have the other party sign as well. A Work from Home Agreement becomes a formal legal agreement once it has been signed by both the employer and employee.
