Around this time of year, employees often request their employer to sign off on a T2200 form for them.
What is a T2200?
The T2200 is a Declaration of Conditions and Employment form that an employer completes for employees in the event where an employee's conditions of employment requires them to work from home and/or results in them incurring expenses.
T2200s can be shared with employees as a PDF which can be printed and completed manually or as a fillable / savable PDF, which can be completed electronically. Here is the link to both versions.

For employees in Québec, the T2200 equivalent form is called TP-64.3-V, General Employment Conditions. It is also available in PDF and fillable PDF formats. Here is the link to both versions.
