Discussion on: Forget pay cut, give me a raise to work remotely

For me it entirely depends on how you personally feel about working remotely : If you would rather keep working on site than keep the same pay to work remotely, then by all means ask for a raise (but also be prepared to keep working on site if your employer refuses).

If on the contrary you really like the idea of working remotely and would actually prefer it than working on site... Well it's a win win situation : You'll work from home and your employer will get more out of you !

As long as nothing is forced onto the employee (and I'm lucky to live in a country where you cannot enforce a pay cut or work from home without the employee's consent), I don't think there are any rules to follow : it's just a negociation that depends on the wishes and preferences of each individual.
