Remote Workers

There's so much more to telecommuting policies than just sending workers home with a laptop.

As telecommuting becomes a more popular and necessary choice for companies, the long list of compliance obligations continues to grow. Get a crash course on how to create policies and procedures for your remote workers that are fair and legally safe at the upcoming Compliance Workshop: Remote Employees.

Noted employment attorney (and remote worker!) Anniken Davenport will walk you through the simplest and most sound legal strategies on remote worker compliance. She'll also address participant questions, so you can get custom answers to your trickiest telecommuting questions.

Stay up-to-date and out of court with all the legal compliance factors you need to know about your remote staff. Including:

  • FMLA and ADA. Both demand different eligibility and oversight for remote workers.
  • Outdated wage and hour laws. How to avoid laws that require you to pay remote workers for the expenses they incur on your behalf.
  • Managing teleworking and intermittent COVID-19 FMLA emergency leave.
  • Time-keeping.This may be the hardest task of all – and the biggest risk for class-action, off-the-clock lawsuits.
  • 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. nonexempt and employee vs. independent contractor.
  • Teleworking after the pandemic. When it's over, can you take it away?
  • The complications of remote workers in different states. How to adjust hiring, time-keeping and pay factors for remote workers who live in a different state than their employer.
  • Worker's compensation. How you can mitigate the risks with planning and monitoring.
  • Reasonable accommodation. Why you must consider allowing employees with certain injuries or illnesses to work from home as a reasonable accommodation if you have any other remote employees. AND even if you don't.
