Learn how workers' compensation laws affect remote employees and how you can minimize risk of litigation.

More and more companies are allowing employees to leave the controlled confines of the office to work remotely from home. While this has many benefits for both the employee and employer, it also increases potential Workers' Compensation risk for employers. The employer has little to no control over the home premises. The employee may co-mingle work and home duties at once. The employee may even be located in a different state with different Workers' Compensation laws. This topic will assist employers, HR professionals, and attorneys from different states to identify these issues and provide strategies to minimize risk. This material will also discuss other potential concerns with remote employees and suggest considerations for improvements in existing remote employment policies.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify the unique issues affecting employers who have remote employees.
  • You will be able to recognize when an injury occurring off premises may or may not be covered by Workers' Compensation.
  • You will be able to explain and implement best practices to reduce exposure and best prepare to handle injuries when they arise.
  • You will be able to review your company's remote employment policies and job descriptions in order to more effectively handle potential liability.
