HR Quick Take: Remote Work in Other States

Dentons Davis Brown

Davis Brown Law FirmQ: During “normal” times, my workforce is located in Iowa and for the most part, works from our office. We do not have office locations in other states or countries. Now, most of my workforce is working remotely. A few employees are working from other states to be closer to family, does that mean I now have to adhere to those states’ rules on reimbursable telework costs?

A: Yes. In general, the regulations or statutes that apply to the state the employee is based in will apply to that employee. This would be true for telework rules, accumulation and payment of paid time off, and break times, among many other items.  It also affects IRS issues and job service benefits.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
