Work Time Challenges Presented by New Technologies

 

Employers benefit from having employees plugged in but that can come with its own set of issues.

In contrast to some of the historical work time issues that have spawned numerous interpretations, agencies and courts have provided employers with little guidance as to when employee use of new technologies counts as hours worked. Although the circumstances may be different, employers must rely on the same framework used to analyze historic work hour issues; does the activity primarily benefit the employer; is this a basic work function, or is the activity integral and indispensable to principal activities; did the employer know or should it have known about the activities; and are the activities de minimis? This white paper reviews how employers deal with remote access to computer systems, the use of mobile devices, and social media activities.
