2023 Policies for Newly Distributed Workforces: How to Make the "New Office" Work

Total Credits: 1.2 Self Study

Practice Area:
Labor / Employment
Audio and Video


Recording available after original program date, 2/14/23

In the aftermath of the pandemic, the nature of work has changed.  Employees expect more flexibility. Working from home is no longer a special accommodation.  Employees expect to work remotely, either all of the time or some of the time. Even employers that prefer or require in-person work are having to adapt workplace policies to reflect working-from-home.  This program will review the changing landscape of employment law as more employees work from home:

•    Revising employee handbooks to reflect flexible working schedules and remote work
•    Online harassment and discrimination when working from home
•    Security of work email, sensitive information, and files
•    Tracking time worked and measuring productivity – does this work?
•    “Hoteling” issues – when employees share office space on a rotating basis

Note: This material qualifies for self-study credit only. Pursuant to Regulation 15.04.5, a lawyer may receive up to six hours of self-study credit in a reporting year. Self-study programs do not qualify for ethics, elimination of bias or Kansas credit.
