May 23, 2018
8:30 a.m until 11:45 a.m.
Troy, Michigan

As technological advances gave many people the ability to work from anywhere, more and more employees sought the flexibility of working from home one or more days per week – and in response more and more employers developed work from home policies. For many, the virtual employee became a virtual asset. For others, the virtual employee became a virtual nightmare. As some employers seek to limit or eliminate the work from home trend, the legal and practical issues surrounding the virtual employee are once again in the spotlight.

Topics will include:

  • 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 policies
