Managing Telecommuting in a Changing Legal Environment

Learn the complex wage and hour issues that must be taken into consideration when you have telecommuters in the workforce.

Although telecommuting arrangements can be beneficial to employers and employees, many employers fail to adequately meet the many legal compliance and liability challenges of telecommuting arrangements. Major changes in federal overtime exemptions and new state and local laws governing minimum wages, paid leave, wage theft, and "ban the box" are already having a major impact on the responsibilities of employers concerning their telecommuting employees. These compliance burdens, and the associated risk, may be particularly acute for employers who have telecommuting employees working in multiple states or cities. This topic will provide managers and legal advisers with the background they need concerning the legal landscape surrounding wage and hour, hiring, paid leave, discrimination, workers' compensation, and paid leave issues applicable to telecommuting arrangements, and the management policies and practices they should implement to reduce risk.
