Overview:

The work-from-home setup has rapidly become a trend after businesses started shutting down due to the pandemic. Although this setup can be helpful, it presents unique challenges which employers need to face, particularly in the field of wage and hour law. Typical issues several businesses are struggling with, include claims of unpaid wages, timekeeping inaccuracies, and employee misclassification.

Many companies are still planning to continue with their remote work option even after the pandemic. This means that relevant wage-and-hour issues are also here to stay. It is therefore prudent that employers increase their focus on legal compliance and basic workplace due process to mitigate class action risks.

Listen as a panel of distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group discusses how businesses should address the various wage-and-hour issues relating to remote workforce management. Speakers will also share the best compliance practices which companies can implement in light of the recent trends and developments.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • Remote Workforce – Top Wage-and-Hour Issues
  • Strategic Monitoring of Remote Workers
  • Mitigating Class Action Risks
  • Best Compliance Practices
  • An Outlook
