Telecommuting Policy in Light of Covid-19/Coronavirus

The Telecommuting Policy or Telecommuting Program is a document that outlines the guidelines and rules for implementing telecommuting in an workplace.

Telecommuting is an arrangement between an employer and an employee that allows the employee to perform their duties and responsibilities in an alternative workplace. An alternative workplace is a location that is outside of the employee's regular place of work. An example of an alternative workplace is the employee's home.

Employers should report the adoption of all telecommuting work arrangements to the Department of Labor and Employment ("DOLE").

Take note that this is not a telecommuting agreement between the employer and an employee. This document simply serves as a guideline for drafting said telecommuting agreement.

This document is specifically drafted for circumstances relating to COVID-19 or the Coronavirus.
