Telecommuting: The Next Wave Of Wage And Hour Litigation
|Date / Time:
|| Audio Conference|
Technological developments have resulted in a substantial increase over the last several years in the number of employers offering telecommuting as an alternative work arrangement, and the number of employees who choose it.
Although telecommuting arrangements can be beneficial to employers and employees, many employers have failed to adequately meet many of the legal compliance and liability challenges that telecommuting arrangements may present.
Among the most serious of these challenges are wage and hour issues that present a minefield of potential liability for employers - liabilities that may be avoidable if the telecommuting arrangement is properly managed.
An increasing number of wage and hour lawsuits, frequently collective or class actions, have been directed against employers who offer telecommuting arrangements.
This training session will provide managers and legal advisers with the background they need concerning the legal landscape surrounding wage and hour issues applicable to telecommuting arrangements, and the management policies and practices they should implement to reduce risk. Covered topics include:

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
