Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Here are some of the disadvantages on employer's point of view:

  1. Inability to directly supervise telecommuters.
  2. Costs of establishing appropriate work environment.
  3. Liability and implementation issues.
  4. Resentment of telecommuters by non-telecommuters.
  5. Lack of face-to-face communication and inaccessibility during normal business hours.
