OSHA' regulations

The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not 
have any regulations regarding telework in home offices. The agency issued a directive in February 
2000 stating that the agency will not conduct inspections of employees' home offices, will not hold 
employers liable for employees' home offices, and does not expect employers to inspect the home 
offices of their employees. If OSHA receives a complaint about a home office, the complainant will be 
advised of OSHA's policy. If an employee makes a specific request, OSHA may informally let 
employers know of complaints about home office conditions, but will not follow-up with the employer 
or employee.
