With work-from-home policies extending indefinitely, businesses must consider unique risks associated with remote workforces. Jill Chasson and Scott Bennett guide businesses toward best work-from-home risk management practices in the latest issue of Az Business.

Jill highlights challenges associated with tracking employee hours in a remote setting, encouraging employers to establish procedures or technology solutions to ensure accurate time tracking. Clear communication and enforcement of these processes can help employers refute later claims that employees are owed additional pay.

Scott’s comments focus on cybersecurity threats. During the pandemic, there has been an increase in ransomware attacks that include work-from-home employees clicking on malevolent links in phishing emails.
