Image Overtime and Injury

As Trinidad and Tobago continue to face the challenges associated with existing public health restrictions and stay-at-home orders, many employers have turned to work-from-home, where feasible, to support business continuity and survival. Under normal circumstances, time management is often a difficult task and usually manifests in significant overtime bills for many companies. Remote work introduces a new set of challenges for employers, not only with time management but also with ensuring that work is conducted in a safe environment and manner.

But what should happen when a worker wishes to claim overtime in a remote environment? What happens if an injury occurs? What are the rights and obligations of employers and employees?

Whether you have an existing work-from-home policy or considering the development of a remote work system, this two-part session will frontally address these issues and equip participants with the knowledge and tools needed to competently and correctly address matters associated with overtime and injury in a remote environment.
