Working “Off the Clock” in the Smart Phone Age

March 19, 2014
On March 6, Colin Love-Geiger gave a presentation on "Working Off the Clock” at a seminar for human resources professionals and attorneys. Noting that smart phones and tablets offer the ability for employees to perform work anywhere, anytime, Colin addressed what constitutes "work," when it is necessary for an employer to pay non-exempt employees for time spent outside normal working hours, and how to ensure that all time is properly recorded and compensated. He also discussed handbook policies and procedures employers can use to ensure that employees do not later allege they are owed additional wages for unpaid work performed off-the-clock. The seminar was hosted by Sterling Education Services, provider of continuing education programs.
 
Colin is a member of Tonkon Torp’s Labor & Employment practice group and works with human resources professionals to develop policies that eliminate risk.
