The pandemic and emerging Delta variant have forced companies, big and small, to consider continuing to allow or require staff to work remotely. This “new normal” has employers reassessing their telework policies. We’ll focus on the ever-changing hybrid workforce and explore the practical and legal challenges raised by the current status of remote work.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand and implement compliant policies and procedures as they relate to remote workers
- Make educated decisions with regard to remote workers in their workplaces
- Ensure compliance for their respective businesses
- Educate their employees regarding expectations and requirements as they relate to working remotely
- Reduce liability for their businesses
- Guide their workplaces with knowledge and confidence
