Save the Date! Complimentary Webcast June 23: Your Employee Asked to Work Remotely Indefinitely (or Short Term): Important Legal Considerations Before You Say Yes

A year ago we all became a remote workforce almost overnight. Now, while many offices are beginning to open, some employees are asking to remain working remotely. Before saying yes, be sure that you know the right questions to ask to avoid the many landmines that could accompany a continued, remote workforce or even future short-term remote work arrangements.

Join us on Wednesday, June 23 at noon CT as Molly Arranz, Meredith Murphy, Tom Pienkos, and Sara Zorich from our Data Security, Tax, IP, and Employment groups discuss several hypothetical remote work scenarios, lessons learned from the past year and how to troubleshoot potential issues including:

  • On-boarding, Form I-9/E-verify compliance, leave laws and other practical considerations
  • Tax nexus considerations, unexpected cross border (state, local, foreign) taxes
  • Cyber hygiene best practices and the potential, continued data privacy threats when working remotely
  • Business incorporation/licensing for your remote employees
  • Payroll requirements (withholding and unemployment taxes)
  • Workers’ compensation/business insurance
  • Critical agreements that need to be in place for employers to protect their IP and ownership
