Labor & Employment Open Forum

Tuesday, Jan. 26, noon-1:30 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

Join the Employment Law Open Forum of the Labor & Employment Law Section to discuss the pros and cons of telecommuting. Telecommuting can be a great perk to employees and a benefit to employers, but it also presents a whole host of issues in the areas of time keeping, confidentiality, premises liability, and co-mingling of personal information and work product.

What experiences have you had with clients telecommuting, or allowing telecommuting? What tips and traps should your clients be aware of when considering telecommuting options?

Bring your lunch and join us for the roundtable discussion. Drinks and snacks will be served.

MBA, 20 West St., Boston

Believed by many to be critical to their business, loathed by others as a limitation on innovation and criticized by some as being overused and implemented in unfair ways, noncompetition agreements are currently the subject of much interest among businesses, venture capitalists, and employees. Two state legislators - Rep. Lori Ehrlich D- Marblehead and Rep. Will Brownsberger D- Middlesex - have proposed sweeping legislation that would significantly restrict the enforceability of noncompetition agreements under Massachusetts law. Join these legislators as well as Russell Beck, Esq. of Foley Lardner LLP in Boston, the principal drafter of the legislation, in a discussion about the proposed legislation.
