Can We Allow Employees to Work From Home?

Our business is temporarily closed due to inclement weather. We do have some employees that offered to work from home until the business can re-open. Can we offer this?

If an employee can complete their job remotely, the employer may grant permission for employees to work from home temporarily. It is important to clearly articulate in a telecommuting policy or a work-from-home policy that a high level of performance is still required and that all non-exempt employees should accurately track their time to be paid for all hours worked. 

Although not all employees may have the capacity or ability to work from home, supervisors can grant permission to employees that can work remotely.
