Remote Work (Rebecca Davies, Blake Padget, Lynn McGuire)

Covid has focused attention on remote work, and more employers are offering or considering it as an option. And all employers must consider potentially allowing remote work as a possible disability or religious accommodation. This session will consider various aspects employers must consider regarding remote work, including applicability of various state laws, accessibility of technology, employment policies and agreements for a remote workforce, accommodation issues, employee benefits issues and other best practices.
