Navigating a Remote Workforce: Is Your Company Subject to Jurisdiction Between State Lines?
The pandemic has spurred a shift toward a remote workforce, with home or vacation offices replacing corporate headquarters as the place where business decisions are being made. These arrangements started as a temporary response to stay-at-home orders, but for many companies remote work may remain a way of life. In addition to affecting corporate culture and business operations, these changes have potential significant legal concerns that should be considered. One fundamental question is whether the existence of a remote workforce impacts jurisdictions where a company can be sued. Steve Blonder, principal in Much's Litigation & Dispute Resolution group, explores this and other questions in Westlaw Today.
