Is work from home here to stay?

Telework programs of the past have neglected to address the fundamental differences between mandatory telework (at the employer’s direction) and voluntary telework (at the employee’s request) – and the legal implications for that distinction are significant.

Littler’s Telework Toolkit provides the solution to employers considering companywide, long-term telework. Its model policy and agreement are intended for employers committed to making telework a regular and coordinated part of their workplace process and culture. The toolkit addresses myriad labor and employment complications for mandatory and voluntary programs.
