The work-from-home environment remains a daily reality for millions of Americans, now a year into the COVID-19 pandemic. For employers, while work-from-home has allowed businesses to continue to function, it presents a variety of complex regulatory and compliance challenges.

Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Benita Jones discussed these challenges and possible solutions at a recent National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) webinar. The “Remote Work: Policies, Benefits, Taxes and other Regulatory and Compliance Considerations” presentation took place March 10. 

Nixon Peabody attorney Tara Eyer Daub joined Jones for the March 10 presentation, which included a look at:

  • Remote work policies and practices,
  • Payroll and benefits administration across state lines,
  • Tax implications of a multi-state workforce, and
  • Other regulatory and compliance issues implicated by remote work.
  • More than 800 participants from across the country attended the event.

A member of the firm’s Education and School Law Team, Benita Jones has extensive experience providing legal support and counsel to educational institutions on a broad array of state and federal legal issues including Title IX, VII, Americans with Disabilities Act, constitutional law, contract law, tort law, policy development and governance, employment law, and student legal issues. Immediately prior to joining Womble Bond Dickinson, she served as the Assistant University Legal Counsel at NC Central University.
