Changing landscape of workforce in the US calls for new policies to be developed

A Forbes Magazine report highlights the changing lanscape of the workforce in the United States. 11% of Xerox’s employees now work remotely 100% of the time, whilst at Aetna as many as 43% of its emloyees telecommute and at Dell 20,000 employees telecommute. As these changes occur it raises challenges over how businesses will measure, regulate and compensate work. As more workers telecommute the question of jurisdiction will also be raised as work permits required by employees could be different to that required in the jurisdiction where the company is based.
