Did you know that an employee is considered to be a remote employee if they regularly work one or more days a week from home or or log on at night or on a non work day in the case of part time employees, to work from home?
This means you could already hire remote employees and not be protected if one of them was to have an accident at home or if their data security was breached.
Once an employee is considered a remote employee, legal issues such as the suitability of the employment contract, occupational health and safety, privacy and cyber security and insurance creep in.
Without knowing what these legal issues are businesses leave themselves wide open to legal action.
But with knowledge and investing in the right documents, policies and procedures you can protect yourself and your business.
