Geographically Remote Employees and How It Affects Us
Employee Relations Content Area

This informative session will go over the rise of geographically remote employees. Telecommuting has risen 79% between 2005 and 2012. Around 3.3 million workers in America commute and it is estimated that 64 million employees hold jobs that are compatible with teleworking. David will discuss some potential legal landmines such as how can employers ensure employees are actually working while away from the office? Must employers provide employees the option of telecommuting? How should employers decide which employees to allow the option of telecommuting? What if an employee is injured while working from home? How can employers ensure the proper protection of confidential and proprietary information? David will give a detailed overview of how to come up with a written telecommuting policy and how your company can stay in compliance.
