The term “workplace flexibility” is commonly used to cover a broad number of topics related to compliance with state and federal leave laws. With 32% of millennial or millennial-minded talent ranking more flexible working options as a priority in the 2015/2016 Global Benefits Attitude Survey, what can your organization do to remain compliant and attractive?

In this HR Break Room conversation, employment law attorney Jim Reidy rejoins the podcast along with Paycom HR manager Chanse Moucka and host Caleb Masters to discuss:

  • the areas of employment law covered under the term “workplace flexibility” HR should consider
  • the potential risks and benefits of making your organization more flexible
  • how your organization can approach working remotely, parental leave and the Family and Medical Leave Act to remain attractive to today’s top talent
