"Off the Clock: Flexibility is the Workstyle of the Future," Entrepreneur Magazine
In this article commenting on Best Buys' success with flexible schedules, Littler's Marko Mrkonich warns that there may be legal obstacles involved. He notes that "workers' compensation and compliance with federal wage and hour laws also present challenges." He discusses how a results-only environment can work for a growing, teamwork-oriented company with processes that aren't highly complicated and clock-driven. However, it may not work for every job. "There are some jobs that are by nature time- and coverage-driven," says Mrkonich.
