Learn how to best handle offsite injuries, from initial reporting through litigation.
The recent pandemic accelerated the move by many employers to permit remote employment by offsite employees. While this has created a number of benefits for both sides of the employment relationship, the use of offsite employees also presents a number of difficult challenges for employers and HR professionals. In particular, exposure for workrelated injuries is more expansive as the traditional boundaries of work life and home life and employee and nonemployee blend together. This topic is designed to highlight some of these concerns and address ways in which they can be minimized. It will also discuss other concerns of remote employment and provide suggestions as to how best to promote a positive and effective working relationship.
