Virtual asset or virtual nightmare? Nemeth Law’s Raising the Bar revisits the pros and cons of virtual employment on May 23

May 2, 2018
Detroit, Michiagn

Raising the Bar, an educational series raising employer awareness of current issues in employment and labor law and offered by Detroit-based Nemeth Law, P.C., returns on Wednesday, May 23, to address the topic of “Virtual Employment—Revisited.”

“For years, companies have offered employees the flexibility of working from home,” Terry Bonnette, a Nemeth Law partner, said, “but success isn’t always guaranteed. As some employers now seek to rein in their work-from-home policies, the legality and practicality of virtual employment is in the spotlight once again—and it’s time for employers to take stock of their practices.”

At the May 23 session, Nemeth Law attorneys will discuss a variety of labor and employment law topics, including: 

  • When working from home works—and when it doesn’t
  • Data security, confidentiality and privacy issues when working remotely
  • Is telecommuting required as a reasonable accommodation for a disability?
  • Wage and hour issues of offsite work
  • “I injured myself while working in my own home. Do I get workers comp for that?”
  • Best practices for implementing (and rescinding) work from home practices

Raising the Bar will be held on Wednesday, May 23, at the Management Education Center, 811 West Square Lake Road, Troy, 48098.  Continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m.  The program begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 11:45 p.m. with one 15-minute break.  The cost of the event is $75 per person and pre-registration is requested.  To register, e-mail Pamela Perkowski at pperkowski@nemethlawpc.com or call 313.567.5921.
