Working Without Boundaries: Practical and Legal Issues Employers Need to Know
COVID-19 accelerated the need for remote working quicker than many businesses anticipated. While employers and employees have adjusted to the new normal, the change in workplace has raised many employment-related questions. Richard Jones joined panelists from Strategy People Culture LLC; Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C.; and ADP for a discussion tackling unanswered questions regarding the shift to working from home.
- Is the remote workers' "office" their personal residence or where the company is located for Tax and Compliance purposes?
- Which state's employment rules do we follow (for example state leave laws, discrimination training rules, etc.) for employees working remotely in one state when their usual office location is in another?
- What policy and procedural issues should be considered as we move forward with an increasingly remote workforce?
- What changes should employers adopt if employees are given a choice to work in an office or remotely?
