Brian Gottheil – Risks & Rewards of a Remote Workforce – PODCAST

On March 15, 2020, thousands of businesses instantly transformed into virtual workplaces. Anyone and everyone who could work for home, especially non-essential workers, was thrust into an unfamiliar zone. Businesses leaders scrambled to provide the tools to make the transition. Those who had already prepared for disaster recovery made a relatively smooth transition, those who were behind the curve are still struggling. The phenomenon left in the wake of crisis is this wonderful functioning remote workforce, which experts have been telling us for years is the “dream” way for staff to work. BUT along with the rewards come risks. To help us with the conversation is Brian Gottheil. Brian is a human resource lawyer with Bernardi Human Resource Law. Brian has a passion for bringing people together. Labeled the “settlement whisperer” by a former colleague for his successes at resolving clients’ legal disputes, Brian’s approach balances the need to take firm positions where appropriate with a creative search for common ground. When litigation is necessary, Brian is a dedicated advocate with experience representing both unionized and non-union employers in all areas of employment and labour law.
