Calo. Ms. Calo notes, "When drafting a telecommuting policy, companies should not forget to require employees to sign a separate telecommuting agreement. This agreement sets forth the specific parameters of the telecommuting arrangement with this particular employee and the expectations between the employer and employee in order for this arrangement to be successful. Such an agreement, to be signed by the employee, will outline employer’s exact requirements for the employee during the telecommuting period."

Ms. Calo also trains organizations on best human resource practices.She is an adjunct professor at Holy Family University, teaching employment law and labor relations at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
