This CLE webinar will guide employment counsel on the growing trend of alternative work arrangements, such as allowing employees to work remotely. The panel will discuss issues that may arise under the FMLA, FLSA and ADA, and how employers can structure alternative work policies to minimize potential discrimination claims.

Description

A work-from-home arrangement can be a productive means to attract and retain talent. Effective work-from-home policies allow companies to provide flexibility and support to employees while maintaining productivity and meeting other work requirements. Offering this voluntary benefit, however, can also create headaches and legal risk for employers.

Regardless of whether an employee is physically present in the office each day, employers must still ensure compliance with all the employment laws applicable to their workforce. Some laws, such as the ADA, may require employers to provide a work-from-home opportunity for individual employees, while laws like the FLSA and FMLA become even harder to navigate with remote employees.

Add in the fact that injuries sustained by an employee while working from home can fall within an employers' workers' compensation coverage, and it becomes easier to see why employers might be hesitant to implement this type of alternative work arrangement.

Listen as our panel of experienced practitioners discusses alternative work arrangements and the legal risks that come with them. Our panel will provide guidance on how to structure policies and train management on how to handle remote workers to avoid discrimination claims.
