Answer from Kim, SPHR, SHRM-SCP:

Yes, you can and should require that remote employees notify the company when they move. There may be compliance and tax obligations when an employee relocates to a new city or state—not only for the employee, but also for you as the employer. For example, a relocated employee may now be owed a higher minimum wage or be eligible for paid sick leave. Workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance may also be affected.
