Description

The COVID - 19 pandemic forced many of us to work remotely from our home offices and living rooms and while we originally thought this may be a short-term option, many organizations seeing the greater productivity with this new work format and have decided to keep it up as a long term solution. However, remote work comes with its own set of challenges, and whether it is privacy or surveillance issues, many employers need to act now to remain ethically responsible.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on March 11th, 2022.
