Best Practices for Managing Hourly Employees in a Flexible Workplace

Learn strategies for improving the design of mandatory overtime, just-in-time scheduling, and no-fault attendance policies in ways that will both save money and improve worker engagement.

The workforce is rapidly changing. Now more than ever, employees are working flexible schedules and hours, and even more are working remotely. While this provides many new opportunities for employers, it also raises serious challenges for managing employees, as well as ensuring legal compliance in the changing workplace. This topic helps human resources personnel and management understand trends in the flexible workplace, and provides insight into traps employers must be wary of concerning the flexible workplace. This information will explain the critical legal obligations, such as proper timekeeping and overtime payment, disability accommodation requirements, and more. Failure to comply with these obligations exposes employers to significant liability. This topic will provide best practices for employers to minimize exposure to claims and offer tips to effectively manage employees in the flexible workplace. This information is critical for employers to ensure compliance and keep up with the growing flexible workplace.
