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
