What Payroll & Managers Need to Know About T2200 Forms for Employees

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.
