About this Webinar
With most employees working remotely during the pandemic, “workplaces” have fundamentally changed. Most employers report having a positive experience with remote work. In addition, they have seen cost savings and are eying more. Many employers are now signaling that working remotely is here to stay in some form or another. When the pandemic ends, employees will no longer be required to work from home and both employers and employees will have to settle on a new norm. In this workshop, Jim Anstey of Nelligan Law will discuss the legal considerations of remote work, the fundamental elements of a remote-work policy, jurisdictional issues and more.
