Working For An Employer From Home 101


Next »


Working from home, also known these days as “telecommuting” or doing "telework", can be ideal for anyone after a diagnosis.

Working from home can be part-time or full-time. It can be a means to get through a temporary period of not feeling well, or permanent.

If you are thinking of telecommuting,whether as an accommodation to help you do your work or for convenience, being informed is important to making it work. (If you are considering working at home either on a freelance basis or in your own business, click here.)

When asking whether you can telecommute:

  • Keep in mind that even though telecommuting has become common, not all employers are familiar with telecommuting. If you work for a company  that doesn’t have a history of offering telecommuting, itis advisable to do your homework so you can provide examples in your industry or similar jobs where the people telecommuting are just as productive for the employer – or even more so.
  • Present your employer with a thought out plan.

If your employer is not keen on the idea of allowing you to telecommute, consider asking for a trial arrangement or the ability to telecommute just one or two days per week instead of as a full time arrangement.
