Expense coverage applies to full and part-time people and we don’t typically cover the expenses of Consultants except for extraordinary circumstances agreed to in advance.
Given that we work from home we expect that what we save in commuting costs and eating out covers home expenses for a quiet space in our house and our personal Internet services. We don’t cover the costs associated with the setup and maintenance of your home office - including furniture, chairs, etc. Further, we do not cover the costs of cell phone plans or cell phones, unless the hardware is explicitly needed for testing purposes. The company provides VOIP based phones for those who need to be on the phone with customers and third parties on a regular basis and data mobile hotspots if travelling and connectivity is required.
All other expenses related to computing hardware, software, travel, etc. required for company related work are covered by us subject to approval by your team leader.
