Legal risks of four-day work week

Employees seeking to harmonize their work life with family or personal commitments often ask to work a four-day week, offering to put in a longer day while on duty. But the law gives employers reasons to hesitate or refuse, entirely aside from the business considerations. Notes Molly DiBianca at the Delaware Employment Law Blog (via @lilyhill), "such a switch may trigger obligations under the ADA, FMLA, NLRA, and other significant employment laws". A PDF of the full paper is here.
