About a quarter of U.S. workers do some or all their work from home. This flexibility can be a huge perk to employees. And if it makes them happier and more productive, it certainly seems like a win for employers too.
But don’t overlook the communication snags and legal issues surrounding off-site employees: Are they expected to attend in-office meetings? Who’s eligible to work remotely? How will they access secure company files? What if they get hurt while working at home? How will you track overtime?
