The Legal Implications of Managing a Remote Workplace

CPD Information: 1 Hour for HRPA and CHRP Members, 1 Substantive Hour for Lawyers

Fiona Brown, Lorenzo Lisi and Daria (Dasha) Peregoudova


The remote workplace is not a new concept. Although, many businesses have recently implemented measures to enable their first work-from-home options due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The remote workplace has already matured into a sustainable 'new normal' for many businesses. What are some of the unique challenges faced by employers for managing their remote workforce? How are performance issues assessed, addressed and resolved in this scenario? Do the same family status and accommodation rules apply to the remote workplace? What about occupational health and safety concerns from home, who is liable? Once the current crisis ends, will the remote workplace be a viable option for your business? If so, what policies should you put in place today to ensure you have planned accordingly?

Join members of the Aird & Berlis Workplace Law Group, as they provide an overview of unique challenges faced by employers managing remote workforces. Legal insight will be provided on ways to address these issues.

Topics include:

  • Legal considerations when transitioning your business into a remote workplace
  • Managing employee performance issues in a remote workplace
  • Family status and accommodation issues for remote workplaces
  • Occupational health and safety considerations for remote workplaces
