Telecommuting's appeal shows no signs of slowing down -- and why would it? Workers enjoy the flexibility and freedom, while employers appreciate the reduced overhead.
More and more workers of all stripes are hopping aboard the telecommuting bandwagon -- and that's where the trouble can start.
If you allow non-exempt employees to work from home, you still need to keep track of their comings and goings, just as you would if they were in the office. You need to be sure they're taking their required meal and rest breaks, that they're not working unauthorized overtime, and that they're not in fact on the clock (in the form of work-related emails, texts, or phone calls) when they should be off it. And if you mis-manage any of this, you could be on the hook for an extremely costly wage/hour lawsuit.
Suddenly, the freedom of telecommuting just got a lot less free.
But don't despair -- instead, join us for an in-depth webinar, specifically for California employers, to be sure you've got all your telecommuting ducks in a row.
- How to develop -- and enforce -- a legally compliant telecommuting policy
- What to consider in your policy, including overtime, in-office meetings, travel, and other factors
- Who pays for a telecommuting employee's equipment -- and the exceptions to this
- How to enforce and keep track of meal and rest breaks for telecommuters
- Smart ways to track and record telecommuters' hours
- What to do if you suspect -- or confirm -- that a telecommuter is performing unauthorized work
- Tips for handling a telecommuting-related dispute with a minimum of hassle and potential legal exposure
