Working Out-of-State


MIT has a policy regarding employees who work outside of Massachusetts. This policy ensures MIT is in compliance with location-dependent laws on unemployment compensation, tax-withholding and time-off policies, as well as issues of holiday observances and vacation.

Employees who will be working out-of-state for more than three consecutive months must contact LNS HQ prior to departure. In addition, employees must update their home address information in Atlas, in the “About Me” section and select “Personal Information”.

For employees who participate in an MIT health care plan, MIT Benefits must be informed if you are working outside of New England but in the US for more than three consecutive months. Benefits will review your options to ensure you and any family members have appropriate health care coverage. In addition, MIT Benefits must be notified either via email at, or by calling (617-253-6151) or toll-free (855-253-6151) when you return to New England.
