This directive applies to employees whose primary job is not in our offices. As part of the discussion process, an appropriate level of communication between tele-shuttlers and superiors will be agreed and more formal during the trial period. At the end of the trial period, the manager and teleworker communicate at a level that corresponds to the level that is working in the office or in a manner and frequency appropriate for the work and the people involved. This agreement contains, in addition to specific details for remote work, more general details applicable to all employment contracts, including remuneration, overtime, benefits, days off and benefit reviews. These details help employers and workers clarify the contours of their employment relationship. On a case-by-case basis, [company name] determines, based on information provided by the employee and the supervisor, the appropriate equipment requirements (including hardware, software, modems, telephone and data lines and other office equipment) for each telework agreement. Human resources and information systems will be used as resources in this area. The equipment provided by the organization is managed by the organization. The equipment provided by the staff is maintained by the staff if the organization deems it appropriate. [Company name] assumes no responsibility for damage or repairs to staff`s own equipment.
[Company name] reserves the right to make a decision on the appropriate equipment at any time. The equipment provided by the organization can only be used for professional purposes. The teleworker must sign an inventory of all goods received and agree to take appropriate measures to protect objects from damage or theft. After the termination of the employment relationship, all ownership of the company is returned to the company, unless other arrangements have been made. While a RemoteWork agreement may be as simple or detailed as the parties wish, this agreement contains essential information, including the names and addresses of the parties, as well as a detailed description of the employee`s rights and obligations. It is important that the agreement defines the type of employment agreement that employers and workers create, whether they are full-time or part-time contracts, indeterminate or fixed employment relationships. This agreement, specific to remote work situations, also allows the parties to define the employee`s work plan. In this section, the parties should describe the number of days per week that the worker can work remotely, the hours of work that the worker should work and the employer should be available to the employer, as well as other expectations as to when and how the worker should be informed before the start of work. Employment and employment contracts in the United States are governed by specific federal and national laws.
For example, the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) covers wages and overtime for certain sectors. However, state laws can define and limit how employers can protect themselves when an employee tries to take customers or use confidential information.
