Promoting a Safe and Well-Functioning Hybrid Workplace

Reality Reset: Employer Operations in a Pandemic and Beyond

2021

This webinar discusses the employment law issues that apply to remote working. Federal wage and hour, workers’ compensation, and safety laws are integral to maintaining safety and wellbeing in the workplace. However, given the unorthodox nature of many remote work arrangements, it can be hard to know exactly how these laws should be applied to a remote workforce. Payment of exempt employees, tracking non-exempt time, and other familiar tasks in traditional workspaces can seem alien and difficult to navigate in the context of remote or hybrid work arrangements. We also cover situations where employers have to make tough decisions that could result in layoffs or furloughs that trigger employer responsibilities under federal and state notice laws like the WARN Act.
