  • What remote work, flexible schedule, and working from home policies are
  • How to survey internal stakeholders
  • Best practices when working with HR managers, legal teams, and other teams
  • Choosing policy specifics
  • Creating and updating documentation for your policies


Using the Templates

Almost 4 million Americans reported working from home in 2018, but more than half don't have a remote work policy in place. Coasting along without policies may seem easier, but in reality, it can cause liability issues that require even more red tape in the future. Even if you already have a policy in place, it's recommended that you review and update policies at least once a year. Remote work policies can cover communication, how to request working remotely, meetings, tools and support, and anything else you think may be confusing or open to interpretation.

Before you dig into the templates, here are our tips for writing and maintaining a remote work policy that works for you and your team:


  • Audit how employees are currently working remotely
  • Update the policy regularly
  • Gather feedback from employees and managers
  • Include employees across all levels when creating and approving the policy
  • Be specific, clear, and concise in the policy to prevent confusion or disagreement
