The Remote Workforce:
Multi-State Employment Law Compliance

Remote Employee Laws

Remote work offers flexibility and cost savings, but it comes with a mountain of HR-law complexities.

By the end of this timely, attorney-led webinar you will:

  • Find out which state employment laws apply to your teleworkers.
  • Discover which states you should recruit in and how to craft those job descriptions.
  • Learn how to control where your employees are working—and where they shouldn’t work.

If your organization has even one remote employee, you need to understand your new compliance obligations.

Remote and hybrid work are here to stay. But too many organizations still haven’t updated their policies for this new world, which puts your organization (and career) at a big risk. Even seasoned HR professionals and supervisors are confused about when they legally MUST say “yes” to employees’ remote-work accommodation requests, and when they can—and should—say “no.”

On Wednesday, April 17th, discover your organization’s rights and responsibilities in this new way of working. Employment law attorney Anniken Davenport will walk you through the steps to get your remote procedures and policies in airtight legal compliance—from timekeeping and accommodations to classifications and multi-state pay issues.

While remote work brings many flexibilities and cost savings, those come with a mountain of legal complexities. This training will help your organization and HR department comply with total confidence.

Webinar Agenda

  • Why you need to limit where remote work takes place. Complicated state hiring and payroll issues for multi-state remote workers make it essential to know where your remote workers (and job candidates) are located.
  • Remote work isn’t a right—in most cases. You control where work gets done … or at least you should. But sometimes remote work is a required reasonable accommodation. We’ll explain—in plain English.
  • Beware the disloyal teleworker. A new trend has teleworkers cheating on their employers by working for two or more at the same time. Learn how to spot and stop this.
  • Can you limit which states you accept telework applications from? Maybe, maybe not.
  • Harassment on the rise. Shockingly, more workers are reporting sex-, age- and ethnicity-based harassment than ever—especially when teleworking. You need new harassment rules for telework NOW.
  • New telework rules for managers. How to train your managers to successfully supervise off-site staff without resorting to privacy-violating surveillance that can trigger lawsuits.
  • Telework expenses. How to comply with laws that require you to pay remote workers for the surprise expenses they incur on your behalf.
  • Timekeeping and pay. How to comply with state and federal laws on timekeeping and breaks for remote staff. Plus, know when you can pay some teleworkers less than hybrid or office workers.
  • Discipline. The correct way to write up remote workers … and the unique issues in terminating them.
  • Common classification mistakes. How to properly classify remote workers as exempt vs. non-exempt, and employee vs. independent contractor. Jobs change and so does classification.
  • Emergency planning and telework. Learn why telework should be included in your emergency and contingency planning.
