Employees want, need and sometimes demand workplace flexibility.  Remote working, telecommuting and work-at-home arrangements embrace work/life balance but can also bring legal questions, worker inequities and sometime, performance challenges.  Employers can be left to navigate multi-state compliance issues, workers compensation, geographic pay differentials, FLSA, paid sick leave, business travel (versus commuting expenses) and a host of other challenges in order to attract and keep a productive workforce. 


If you have or are considering a remote worker policy, join us and our panel of thought leaders.
