What if a remote employee needs to come into the office to meet with a client?

If possible, the remote employee should be given the option to join virtually, or they can choose to come into the office voluntarily. If it is determined that the employee must attend the meeting in-person at a TPD office, then it should be chargeable to the client. If TPD’s project manager determines the employee’s travel time and expense cannot be charged to the client, then TPD will need to reimburse this employee’s travel time and expenses, same as it would for any other employee traveling to an office other than their home office, as described in TPD’s Travel Time and Expenses policy in the TPD Employee Handbook.
