Are Your Remote Workers Equipped with the Right Tools to be Successful?

More and more companies are implementing a telecommuting policy. This trend is becoming more prevalent in the insurance industry.

White Paper Summary

One reason is because baby boomers are retiring and exiting the workforce at a rapid pace leaving the younger generation to take the reigns. Additionally, there is a cost benefit to offering this option. It’s more affordable than traditional considerations and offers employees the opportunity to have a good work/life balance. Employers must have a solid plan in place for managing remote employees where both parties have a clear understanding of expectations, including at-home work-related injuries.

Determining if an at-home injury is compensable hinges, in large part, upon a clear cut determination of whether the employee was furthering their employer’s interest at the time of injury or if they were performing a normal activity of life. This can be a fine distinction, so it is important to thoroughly investigate each individual loss to ensure your compensability determination is well thought-out. There are many examples that warrant consideration beyond simply the facts of the loss, including the law in the applicable jurisdiction. Outlined below are some important considerations for employers.
