ABOUT THE EVENT

Attend our webinar on avoiding legal pitfalls in a virtual workforce. Telecommuting is how so many workers today manage to stay employed and still handle other responsibilities such as elder care, child care, disabilities they may have etc. Yet there are legal perils that companies face when they allow workers to telecommute. Join employment law expert Melissa Fleischer, Esq. as she lays it all out for you and helps ensure that your organization is best protected. She will also discuss the dangers a company faces when after providing this important benefit to workers, the organization suddenly takes it away as happened recently when Yahoo CEO suddenly announced that Yahoo would no longer allow their employees to telecommute.
