View Full Version : Health care for work at home employees?

02-22-2014, 05:58 AM
Is a business where all employees work from home required to offer heath care?

I'm not talking about employees located in another country, the employees are located in the same country the business is registered in. And since they work from the comfort of their homes and are not exposed to the 'dangers' of a workplace I imagine that health care is optional?

I am no expert but I would think it would depend on a lot of factors such as size of business and rather or not the employees are really employees or 1099 contractors. Once those factors are determined I would get some help from a professional to help choose the right plans and get everything set up! Good Luck!

Healthcare would be entirely optional as far as I know. Though, I'm not quite sure anymore due to this whole new "Obamacare" bullshit the U.S. is dealing with.

I am not sure if that applies. If you are in the same country but different houses, then health care insurance cannot apply. It will be up to them to take care of themselves.

I'm not sure if that applies, but I would think that if you work from home you would be responsible
for yourself even if you are a employee because you don't work in the office where you are employed.
But I'm not sure of that though.

If they are fulltime employees, I think it's only fair to offer those types of benefits. The only difference is the location that they work in, but it does not mean that their working conditions are better and that they won't get sick anyway. I think every fulltime employee deserves health care benefits among other things.

Also, this is not just about being required. It also ensures that you have healthy employees and that they are able to work for your for a long time. It motivates employees a lot when they have these types of benefits.

You are not obligated to offer healthcare to employees working from home. In fact, that is an expense that you should not place on the business. The reasoning in this judgement is that not only are they just sited at home, they do not go out of the house to carry out their duties. Therefore, adding healthcare should only be placed because the business is successful enough to offer healthcare as an incentive.

I'm in agreement with others here who have pointed out that you likely do not have to pay. That being said, none of us here are experts. I would talk to someone with legal knowledge of the matter before you relied on the advice of internet strangers, especially with the recent approval of the Obamacare law.

The answer to your question would depend on the country you are in to a certain extent. It would also depend on how the employees are described. Are they employees who receive a regular paycheque or are they self employed individuals? While you probably don't have to pay for healthcare, it would be a good idea to make sure that the employees know this and that there isn't an assumption that someone is paying for them.

Not much we can do when you don't tell us which country this business is located in. These things are usually stated in the law, and obviously every country has different ones.

From what I know healthcare is considered a benefit, just like meal tickets. Some companies offer them, some don't. I'm not sure about the legal aspect. However, you need to inform your employee that you wouldn't be insuring them. It is useful to cover healthcare. Everybody can get sick. At work, in the bus, at the grocery stores. Germs everywhere. It's a lot more convenient for the state to pay for the medical leave than for your employee to receive no pay while they're struggling with a disease. I'm not sure how many people with agree to work without healthcare.

The advantages of downtime, physical pastime and an excellent night time's sleep are properly documented. Employers need to encourage their personnel, such as those operating from home, to take proper breaks, take break day if unwell, and to have a healthful paintings/life stability.

Unfortunately, the healthcare system works awfully and many people have to find the medication for them. So, I was lucky to find a cure for insomnia on the link here (https://joyorganics.com/wholesale-cbd-oil-reseller/). I am not sure that it suits everybody but for me, it worked well. You should try it

Offering medicinal services benefits is a troublesome, careful procedure, particularly for completely remote organizations whose representatives work in various urban areas and states.

I think, there are few companies that provide health insurance to employees from other countries. I work from home and take care of my health by myself. The main rule is to organize a daily routine in a proper way to have time for sport, walks, sleep, rest. Also, I take supplements and vitamins from the Online pharmacy (https://www.enhanceclub.com/). They help me to boost my immunity system and brain activity.

You should ask your boss about this matter because each situation is different. Some of them are offering this kind of service, others aren't doing that. You are able to find more information regarding this matter on Drugwatcher.org (https://www.drugwatcher.org/paragard-lawsuit/) if you are interested. Health is something that every one of us should be aware of us since there is not a single amount of money that can buy it back. More people should start eating healthily and practice sport in order to avoid having health problems in my opinion
