Some employers are choosing to provide employees with work from home allowances or reimbursing them for certain work from home expenses. Where employers are considering this they should ensure that they create clear and fair policies.
Remote work has been on the rise over the last 15 years, and the COVID-19 global pandemic has provided the work-from-home option with a further boost.
In the post-COVID-19 work world, employers must be ready to face the new challenges of what a return to work entails. With daily press conferences and briefings people have a heightened awareness, and in some cases fear, about what the current environment looks like. With that in mind, as stay-at-home orders and restrictions start to lift and more businesses begin to open and resume “regular” operations, it’s important for employers to start putting return-to-work plans and protocols in place.
