When the pandemic hit in the spring of 2020, it brought with it many changes to the workplace. Workers began to work remotely from home, which with modern technology could be anywhere. Not all workers have returned to work in traditional offices. Some continue to work remotely or have adopted a hybrid work schedule, working in the office part of the time. For workers who have chosen to work remotely from a different state, they need to be mindful of that state’s residency rules. Many states will consider you a resident if you are present in the state for more than 183 days of the year. For companies with remote workers on the payroll who are working from another state, there are also rules to follow. Many states will consider a company as ‘doing business in the state’ if they have employees in that state. This requires the company to register with that state as a foreign entity doing business there and pay state licensing, registration and possibly taxes and unemployment insurance.
