Remote work has been a boon to both employee productivity and morale at many companies, but it’s also exposed employers to a new range of risks.

Drawing up clear work-from-home policies, communicating them to employees, getting confirmation that workers understand and accept the rules, and having procedures in place in the event they say they did not receive or acknowledge the policies: These are all steps employers need to take to reduce the risk of inadvertently violating the law or being hit by employment claims. That’s according to attorneys at Cozen O’Connor, who led a webcast last week on how employers can craft effective work-from-home policies—a particularly timely topic given the role flexibility is playing in retaining workers in a sizzling talent market.

“If you’re looking to hire people or retain employees, obviously wages is a hot issue with what’s going on with inflation,” said Cozen O’Connor member David Barron.
