Telecommuting is generally defined as using technology to permit employees to work from remote locations in lieu of or in addition to the traditional office setting. Many telecommuters work from a home office or in the field. In years past, if you wanted to work from home, you had to take everything you needed with you from the office and remember to return it when done. In today’s global economy, workers can easily access what they need from just about anywhere. Approximately 10 million people were telecommuting in the mid-1990s. Today that number has skyrocketed to more than 20 million telecommuters. Both employees and employers have a new area of risks associated with working from virtual offices.
