The Wall Street Journal recently took an interesting look at a new question for employers. Should you allow employees to use their own laptops, tablets and mobile devices to do company work?

In a recent ruling, the California Supreme Court found that employees who do not reside in or work in California, but who travel there for business, are subject to the California Labor Code’s overtime provisions. The case, Sullivan v. Oracle, involved Oracle employees who were based in Colorado and Arizona, but who traveled to California to train customers. Oracle is a California corporation, but this fact was not the court’s basis for its finding. It was instead based on a determination that the state’s overtime regulations apply to all employment in the state, regardless of the employee’s state of residence.
