Your Remote Employees: The Legal Risks & Practical Solutions

Register Here

You need a rock-solid telework agreement now more than ever.

In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn:

  • When you must say ‘yes’ … and can say ‘no.’

    Learn how to legally decide who must be given remote-work accommodations, why and for how long.

  • How to update your policies.

    If you haven’t updated your leave and pay policies since before the pandemic, you’re at risk.

  • How to track time, pay and location.

    Prevent disputes over off-the-clock work. Also, if you don’t know where your remote employee really is, you could face a legal nightmare.

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 compliance procedures for this new world, which puts your organization (and career) at a big risk. Most HR professionals and supervisors are also confused about when they legally MUST say “yes” to employees’ remote-work accommodation requests—and when they can say “no.”

On March 1st, 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 in airtight legal compliance—from timekeeping and accommodations to classifications and multi-state pay issues.

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

Agenda for Your Remote Employees

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Can you limit which states you accept telework applications from? Maybe, maybe not.
  • Harassment on the rise. Shockingly, more workers are reporting sexual-, age- and ethnicity-based harassment than ever—especially when teleworking. You need new harassment rules for telework NOW.
  • New telework rules for managers. Here’s how to train your managers to successfully supervise off-site staff.
  • Telework expenses. How to avoid 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.
