With the health outlook uncertain and the vaccination process months away from completion, many companies that shifted to remote work environments during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic still have employees working from home. While some organizations intend to transition back to the office, many have seen improved productivity with their remote workers and expect to maintain this option long-term. While this option increases talent pools and enhances flexibility for current employees, it creates various employment and tax implications for employers. Given these important considerations, employers should challenge their prior assumptions on the viability of remote work.
