Ogletree Deakins launches compliance toolkit to support remote workers and their employers
Ogletree Deakins, one of the largest labor and employment law firms representing management, is unveiling its Remote Work Toolkit, an expansion of the firm’s OD Comply resources.
The Remote Work Toolkit was created in response to the needs of the employer community as they use or consider remote work options.
“Employers are evaluating the pros and cons of allowing, encouraging, or even requiring employees to work remotely,” said Stephen Woods, chair of the firm’s OD Comply group. “The Remote Work Toolkit was developed to serve as a useful tool for employers navigating this burgeoning area of multistate compliance.”
Significant legal predicaments for both employers and their workforces include employee onboarding, business expense reimbursement, state tax, state unemployment withholding, privacy and data security, and termination issues.
The Remote Work Toolkit offers helpful templates, forms, and a guide to help employers stay in compliance as they implement or continue remote work.
The Guide to Remote Work covers hiring, employing, and terminating remote employees; expense reimbursement requirements in all 50 states; home workplace safety; and complex 50-state income tax and unemployment insurance considerations.
The toolkit also offers template policy and forms, including a remote work policy, request and approval form, and employee acknowledgment.
The Remote Work Toolkit is the latest innovative offering from OD Comply—an Ogletree Deakins solution for difficult multistate and other employment compliance topics.
OD Comply subscriptions provide employers with user-friendly materials on thorny topics like state leaves of absence, state wage and hour, marijuana, and more.
