Webinar: The Virtual Workforce: A Reality Check for Employers Dealing with Telecommuting Employees

March 26, 2014
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EST

Speakers: Gabriel J. Jiran

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EST


It is estimated that 24% of employed Americans report working at least some hours from home each week. Many employers do not yet have standardized policies for work-from-home arrangements, but even those that do have policies often fail to pay enough attention to the regulatory requirements of such arrangements.

This webinar will discuss the regulations governing telecommuting arrangements, as well as the potential risks and liabilities associated with them. Included will be a discussion of the following:

  • Regulatory requirements under ADA, FLSA, FMLA, Workers' Compensation and OSHA
  • Best practices for creating or amending existing Work-From-Home policies, including a discussion of compensation, overtime rules and requests for intermittent or caregiver leave
  • Potential for discrimination claims and how to handle work-from-home requests
  • Liabilities for employers when injuries occur while working from home

Please join Gabe Jiran, a Partner in our Employment Law Practice Group as he provides step-by-step guidance for employers dealing with an increasingly remote workforce.
