Teleworking Compliance Issues Amid the COVID-19 Crisis


The COVID-19 pandemic forced employers and employees to take a crash course in teleworking. This way of working has been a boon for many employers, resulting in more flexibility for employees, lower real estate costs, and the Zoom cocktail party. But there are a number of legal issues associated with teleworking about which employers should be aware - and may not have had a chance to learn in the short time "normal work" transformed to fully remote work for so many.

In this engaging webinar, Robin Shea, a partner with the management-side employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP, discusses compliance issues relating to telework, including those under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, data security regulations, wage and hour laws for both exempt and non-exempt employees, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What the Families First Coronavirus Response Act says about teleworking;
  • How to keep your data secure when an employee works from home;
  • The wage-hour issues associated with teleworking employees, and whether they differ if the employee is FLSA-exempt or non-exempt; and
  • How to determine when teleworking should be a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
