Can Employers Monitor Employees Who Work From Home Due To The Coronavirus?

Some employees who are working remotely, now face a new privacy concern, since their employers have started using surveillance apps or programs to watch or monitor their productivity. This not only raises employee privacy concerns, but also questions as to whether this is a legal or an illegal action.

When working from home, there may be a new concern for workers other than going without pants. To ensure employees do what they’re supposed to, some employers have begun using surveillance apps and programs to monitor worker productivity.

Happy Tip Tuesday!

Did you know the State of Virginia doesn't have its own overtime compensation pay laws?
Virginia follows federal overtime laws established under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). There are some jobs in the state that are not covered by FLSA, instead they follow the Virginia Minimum Wage Act, which doesn't include overtime requirements.
If your employer is withholding you from overtime pay, you should consider speaking with an attorney.

Intellectual Property - McClanahan Powers

Why a trademark is so important to a business?
A trademark not only provides brand recognition, but it also provides brand protection. There are many firms across the world that have built their brand identity around their trademark, such as Coca-Cola.
When a business develops a strong brand recognition, they may use this opportunity to enhance their credibility and strengthen their relationship with their customers, which means more clients will be loyal to the brand.
Having a registered trademark may benefit your business in many ways. To learn more about the legal process to register your trademark, book a consultation with one of our attorneys by phone at (703) 520-1326, or fill out a contact form through our website.

Whether you are starting, developing, or expanding a business, it is essential to understand potential legal issues your firm and its industry can encounter. Many entrepreneurs begin and operate their business with minimal or no legal assistance at all. So, creating a solid legal foundation in the early stages of your firm is a great business practice, rather than having to pay for serious legal problems in the future.
An experienced business attorney can assist your firm in avoiding such issues by ensuring that you and your company's legal rights are protected.
