Workshop Description/Agenda

Learn how to properly manage off-site employees and avoid legal pitfalls.

Telecommuting saves employees the time and expense associated with traditional commuting, and it can allow employers to spend less on office space and to sell the possibility of a virtual workplace to prospective employees. However, the virtual workplace creates real-world issues. Many of those issues can be avoided or at least minimized through planning and attention to the challenges created by having employees work at home. This topic will discuss those issues and offer practical plans to address them at your companies.
