The COVID-19 pandemic forever changed the health center workplace as “stay-at-home “orders abruptly required many health centers to send non-clinical staff home to work. Although non-clinical staff have returned to working on-site, health centers are increasingly permitting certain staff members to work from home on a part-time or full-time basis.
Given this new and unprecedented reality, health centers must resolve a myriad of legal and compliance considerations by ensuring their policies address the unique issues presented by home workplaces, while also adhering to HRSA’s requirements. Successfully navigating this tightrope of compliance land mines as well as federal, state, and local laws is of the utmost importance to the sustainability of health center operations.
In this session, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell, LLP will help health centers identify some of the more common operational and legal issues that arise with remote work arrangements and explore the best practices for ensuring that your organization’s policies and processes comply with HRSA’s requirements and the applicable law. Health center leaders will also showcase their efforts to incorporate remote work policies and arrangements in their organizations. Attendees will learn how to utilize Remote Work Agreements to limit potential liabilities, increase productivity, and manage remote work arrangements with staff.
