Employer Considerations for Telecommuters

Product ID: CA2986D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Perks and challenges of working remotely

Flexible work arrangements that allow employees to choose their work location are considered by many to be the “new normal.” In the ongoing “War for Talent,” offering employees the ability to work outside a traditional office setting is increasingly used as a benefit to attract and keep talented individuals.

Employer Considerations for Telecommuters will advise you how to address the potential legal issues that can arise from permitting telecommuting. You’ll learn what should be addressed in a telecommuting policy, as well as how to word the expectations and rules for remote employees.
