The wife is now required to work from home. Will this be a permanent status, we don’t know?

We are very willing currently to support the company and the situation with the COVID-19 restrictions.

The company at present is expecting to use our home surface pro, printer. My wife needs a larger monitor and or a dual-screen system, multiple-page scanner and a 10 key keyboard. Note: the surface pro can handle the extra device but requires a docking station. The company has no laptops, as for the dual monitors, 10 keyboard not will to separate with. Presently they are not willing to supply however a proper scanner and docking station is in the discussion also. Clueless management.

I understand that this is difficult times and uncharted area for many companies but the same can be said for those tossed into “working from home”. Because of the lack of proper equipment, the job is difficult a product drops. Clueless management.

The wife is connected via VPN to her company computer.

  • My personal computer, my Epson inkjet printer with single page scanner, my desk, my home space, my network, router, my ink and most of all the inability for me to use my computer.
  • What is required: example of pricing
  • additional computer $1200.00
  • snap scanner $400.00
  • multi-page printer $400.00
  • desk and chair $500.00
  • docking station $140.00
As you can see this builds up of personal investment. With no guarantee of future employment or reimbursement is a looming cost.

Looking for a “contract document” to present to my wife employer for payment and or stipend for equipment, a stipend of internet and home space and guarantee employment for a period of 2 years. The equipment will be prorated monthly for a period of 2 years.

Not only that, but are all of these people who are at home working have secured internet? Are we going to have a rash of stolen identies, credit card fraud and other issues? A month ago we were worried about hacking and identity theft, but as soon as it's ordered for people to work from home, they do it with possibly no regard of the information that could be hacked.

If you're the medical field of billing, accounting, medical documentation, tel health... without a secured internet that is a HIPAA violation.

My son works in the fraud department of a major financial institution. They are attempting to set up a secured landline, computer and the tools that he will need to work from home. Target date is April 1. We'll see how it goes.

My wife is a manager for a large health insurance company. All but 4 of her employees are now working from home. Everybody has a laptop and a secured landline. The only drawback is that everybody must use their own cell phones for conference calls as few have landlines for phones. Of course, the deeper the company's pockets the easier it is to satisfy everybody's needs.
