Wouldn't it be nice to work from home, in your kitchen, with the coffee pot right at hand? The pressure to provide alternate work arrangements for staff and attorneys is strong. But there is much more involved in setting up these arrangements than allowing someone to work from home. Consider some of the legal issues, such as worker's compensation and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements, security of firm and client data, and the impact on the firm's finances. In this session, attendees will learn more.

Seminar Objectives
  • Discuss the legal issues involved for the law firm when employees work from home, including FLSA, worker's compensation, safety, etc.
  • Construct technology policies that will protect their firms' data and safeguard the confidentiality of client data
  • Estimate the impact on their firms' finances, such as overtime, tax issues, and office space considerations
