Return to Work Virtual Toolkit for Employers: Considerations as Employers Extend Remote Work


The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers all over the world to consider various new policies as workers return to the workplace. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions.

As many employers delay bringing employees back to the workplace until 2021, the Department of Labor has issued evolving guidance for remote work. Employers face a host of unique challenges as they look to navigate these issues and remain in compliance. This webinar will provide practical strategies to identify, navigate and mitigate potential risk.

Discussion topics include:

  • Wage and hour issues with a remote workforce, including defining the start and end of the workday for exempt and non-exempt employees, enhancing and enforcing workplace policies with remote workers and business expense reimbursements
  • Workplace accommodations for remote workers including in-person work, flexible hours and more
  • Privacy and confidentiality of employer and customer data

We will also conduct a Q&A session with the speakers at the end of the webinar. Please submit your questions in advance during registration.


Minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) credit is pending in California, Illinois and New York. A Multi-Jurisdiction Certificate of Attendance will be made available to participants requesting MCLE credit in all other jurisdictions. To be eligible to earn a CLE certificate, you must attend the entire webinar. Credit for partial attendance will not be provided.
