sick/personal day vs. work at home day?
hi all. we are a small company in ny. our existing policy is no telecommuting allowed, employees get up to 5 paid sick/personal days a year. this is no longer working. we have staff who are too sick to come in or have a sick child but can work from home and expect to not get charged a sick/personal day, or charged for just a half-day. we need to implement a looser telecommuting policy but also protect ourselves against employees abusing the policy (putting in minimal time and saying they worked from home, or taking too many work from home days). can someone please offer any advice on this issue? thanks!!
