One year after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many employers are shifting to a permanent remote model for at least some of their employees. But allowing employees to work remotely from states in which they do not normally work can create a host of tax and employment issues for businesses.

This webinar will provide the most up-to-date answers for businesses on how telecommuting employees in multiple jurisdictions impacts their tax and employment obligations. It will cover the effects of work-from-home arrangements on withholding and other tax obligations of employers, and some of the contradictory state rules. Finally, we will address the status of paid leave and unemployment under existing federal and state programs.
