Setting the Rules for Remote Work:

Legal Requirements & Considerations

60-Minute Online Training

  • Remote employee management.

    Why you need a remote work policy, and what to include.


  • Telework continuation.

    How to fairly decide who gets it and why they can continue working remotely.

  • Tracking time and paying properly.

    Master the hardest task of all – and the biggest risk for class-action, off-the-clock lawsuits.



Important steps to take now that work-from-home

has gone from a popular perk to a permanent solution.

One big trend that is arguably here to stay thanks to the pandemic is telecommuting. And with it comes a long list of compliance obligations.

Learn how to set telecommuting rules that are legally sound and clarify management and employee expectations at the upcoming Setting the Rules for Remote Work.

Noted employment attorney (and telecommuter!) Anniken Davenport will walk you through the simplest and most sound legal strategies on remote worker compliance.

Agenda for Setting the Rules for Remote Work

  • 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  • Outdated wage and hour laws.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.
  • Time-keeping. How to comply with state and federal laws on time-keeping and breaks for remote staff.
  • Managing changed duties and responsibilities. What to do when telework jobs change. You must stay on top of reclassification.
  • 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.
  • Remote workers in different states. The complicated hiring and payroll factors for remote workers who live in a different state than their employer - or want to move or relocate temporarily.
  • 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.
