The COVID-19 pandemic forever changed the workplace as legal aid organizations were forced to abruptly transition from the conventional “in office” model to one in which many employees worked remotely from home offices. Now, nearly two years later, many offices have yet to fully reopen, and it appears that the “new” normal will consist of employees who either work full-time from home or only come into the office on a part-time basis.

Given this new and unprecedented reality, employers must contemplate and resolve a myriad of legal considerations and obligations that specifically pertain to remote workers, such as:

  • How do we ensure that we are satisfying the FLSA’s overtime pay requirements for nonexempt remote working employees?
  • Are we responsible for injuries sustained by an employee who is injured while working from home?
  • Do we have a responsibility under OSHA to ensure that an employee’s home workplace is free from hazards that are likely to cause harm?
  • What accommodations, if any, do we have to make under the ADA for employees who work at home?
  • Will we potentially face liability under Title VII if we do not uniformly offer remote work arrangements to our employees?
  • How do we protect confidential and sensitive business information from others who may reside with an employee?


In order to adequately manage remote working arrangements and to mitigate any potential liabilities that may arise from the above legal issues, legal aid organizations should conduct a thorough and comprehensive audit of their existing policies and practices to ensure that they have the requisite strategies in place for sustaining long-term remote operations.

This training, led by H. Scott Johnson, Jr. of Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP, will help you identify and navigate some of the more common legal issues that arise with a remote workforce by walking you through the best practices and some of the “must have” policies that you should have in place. Remote Work Agreements will also be discussed as a way to limit your potential liabilities, increase productivity, and effectively manage remote work arrangements with your employees.
