I have a job that will involve me doing technical support for an IT company from home. Since I have never had a job working from home I am not used to the hiring process not being very streamlined. I have had formal interviews and I have been given the position to start soon. My question is .. what should they be paying for (by law) and or what should I be concerned about. The job equipment simply requires a computer, seperate phone line and headset. They were not up front with me about what I needed really. When I asked them they said - just regular land-line phone connection - they will re-imburse me for the cost of it. But it has been assumed that I will be using my own computer - being that it is capable to do the work I would like them to provide me with one so that I don't have to use my personal one (even if I probably wouldn't mind it). Should I ask them anyway? Then raises the question - by law are they required to provide me with work or company owned equipment other than my own? So I will be needing a headset - and I can imagine a decent one could cost up to 50 dollars. But I am going to make sure they cover the cost of that. I am just wondering if anyone knows the general guidelines of this, they are faxing me paperwork to fax back to them that will put me into their system as well. I am just looking for some feedback and maybe some suggestions. Thanks in advance.
