June 28, 2018, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (Pacific Time)
It sounds simple. Instead of sitting in an office in an employer-managed building space, an employee performs the exact same job while sitting at a room at home. Everything else stays just as it was.
Or does it? This presentation will explore the very many (and often complicated!) implications, obligations, and second-order ramifications unavoidably involved when an employee “works remotely.” It will include a brief history of the development of the concept over the several decades preceding the present day, and will illustrate the great variety of arrangements and circumstances that can fall under the broad definition of “telecommuting.” We will explore some of the legal and ethical issues at stake, and articulate the very real advantages and pitfalls at hand.
Participants in this webinar should expect:
- To gain a definitional understanding of what Telecommuting is, and the many different kinds of ways it can be implemented.
- To gain awareness of the variety of technological, organizational, practical, and legal tools and techniques commonly involved.
- To enhance a realistic understanding of the rewards and risks, from the perspectives of both employer and employee, inherent in the arrangement
