As a result of the pandemic, employers were required to immediately pivot to a remote work environment, even for positions that were previously believed to require in-office presence to effectively perform the job. In this webinar, we will explore the legal ramifications of a remote workforce including its impact on the ADA accommodation process, considerations for workplace safety, and issues for compliance with timekeeping and wage payment obligations for remote non-exempt workers.
