(Recorded Webinar) Beyond the Basics: Navigating the Challenges of Remote Work Arrangements
When the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020 and several states issued varying degrees of stay-at-home orders, many businesses were abruptly forced to transition to remote work arrangements overnight. As a result, employers’ efforts to implement remote work policies were largely an “on the job” (pun intended) learning experience, which slowly evolved in real-time by trial and error.
Over the past couple of years, as employees have returned to the conventional office workplace, businesses have accepted the post-COVID reality that maintaining some semblance of a remote work arrangement benefits the bottom line as it increases productivity and performance, reduces turnover (by providing workers with a better work-life balance), and lowers costs. However, despite the formalization and implementation of remote work programs, businesses continue to face new legal challenges.
This webinar is a follow-up to our popular two-part webinar series “Navigating the Legal Pitfalls of Work From Home Arrangements.” Whereas the primary purpose of that webinar series was introductory in nature, in this webinar we will take a deeper dive and explore some of the more advanced legal challenges and considerations that organizations grapple with, such as:
- Combatting “quiet quitting” in the workplace
- Conducting remote personnel investigations
- Requests to work remotely as an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodation
- The applicability of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to remote workers
- The rise in lawsuits by remote workers seeking reimbursement for home-business expenses
- Negotiating remote work policies with unions
In this webinar, we will navigate through the legal issues presented by these challenges; and, we will walk you through the best practices to help your organization reduce potential liability.
Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Employment Law and Human Resources Compliance and Training Package holders. For more information on the training package, click here or Contact Us.
