Remote Workers and Legal Risks: What In-House Counsel Need to Know


Event Description

In today’s rapidly evolving work landscape, remote work has become more prevalent than ever. While it offers flexibility and convenience, it also presents unique legal challenges that every organization must navigate.


Join on Thursday, September 14, at 12pm ET / 9am PT for the next edition of our IHC Deep Dives Series as Lindsay Dischley and Melissa Salimbene of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC, will provide an overview of the legal risks associated with remote workers and offering actionable insights to mitigate potential pitfalls.


Key takeaways include:


  • Employee Handbooks (how to protect your organization from liability due to remote workers)
  • Wage and Hour Issues (misclassification of exempt/non-exempt, misclassification of independent contractors, and extreme penalties for violations of these laws)
  • Leave Laws (the interplay of different state, federal and local laws that govern your employees)
  • Employee Agreements (how to ensure your employment agreements and severance agreements comply with all applicable law and protect your organization); and
  • Restrictive Covenants (how to make sure confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements are lawful and enforceable)
