Chris Holman welcomes back Clifford Hammond, Shareholder, Foster Swift Collins & Smith, Southfield, and a half dozen locations across Michigan.

Watch Cliff and Chris discuss the Sparrow Foundation, some upcoming events, including plans for their Annual Gala, and MORE in the YouTube video shared below:

In the conversation, Chris looks to find out several things from Cliff.

If an employee approaches their employer and requests to work remotely, is the employer obligated to allow them to?

How can employers stay compliant when hiring remote employees?

Are remote workers covered under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act?

Are employers able to discipline remote workers?

Should employers and HR teams add anything in their employee handbooks to accommodate remote workers?
