Your Remote Employees:
The Legal Risks & Practical Solutions
Wednesday, August 10, 2022 | 1:00 PM ET
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 August 10, discover your organization’s rights and responsibilities in this new standard of work. Employment-law expert 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 costs 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.
- When to offer an accommodation. It’s vital to know when you must allow—and when you can reject—employees’ requests to work remotely for medical or mental health reasons. We’ll explain—in plain English.
- 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.
- 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.
