Employees or prospective employees may ask, “Can I work from home?” How you respond can determine whether you can attract the right talent. Regardless of whether you grant or deny the request, it can create legal issues for your institution. “Work at home” – often described as “the future of work” – creates many new legal and practical landmines for employers and HR managers.

This webinar will thoroughly address the process of deciding if telecommuting is an option for a specific position, employee, or applicant. This program will equip you to handle work-at-home requests and issues under the FLSA (including overtime issues), ADA, FMLA, and a myriad of other employment laws.
