Effective Policies for the Increasing Demand of Telecommuting Employees
Recorded On: 09/09/2021
During the COVID pandemic, many employers had employees working from home without the proper policies and procedures in place. Now, as telecommuting continues to grow in the United States, many employees prefer the flexibility working from home affords while employers recognize cost savings by having employees work remotely. During the worker/talent shortage, employees are also increasingly demanding flexibility and/or resisting the return to in-person work. Having a sound policy is essential to maintaining legal compliance, effectively overseeing remote work and handling the issues that accompany this new type of workplace.
If you already have employees who work from home, this webinar will help you improve your compliance. And if you are considering whether to allow employees to telecommute, you’re in the right place too!
Join the Michigan Chamber and attorney Aaron Graves from Bodman PLC for an interactive presentation on creating, implementing and managing remote and hybrid places that will benefit employers by learning the essential elements remote work policies should include and receive recommendations for handling types of issues commonly occurring in remote workplaces.
This webinar will be recorded and available on-demand shortly after the live webinar.
