Hello, I'm in a similar situation. Though project leadership supported me, the firm is strictly prohibits international telecommuting. You can take your laptop outside the US for upto 90 days, but you cannot work from India due to tax implications. The benefits team was very clear about this and there was no room for negotiation.



Possible . Just confirm with project leadership and set the right expectations
