Back to Business: An HR Roadmap for Life After Lockdown
Now that COVID-19 lockdown orders in most areas across the country are lifting, employers are beginning to reopen their workplaces. As employees return to work, and customers and contractors are allowed back into businesses, employers and human resource professionals are left facing novel and complex challenges as they adapt to evolving and increasingly intertwined laws, regulations and practical concerns and considerations.
During this complimentary webinar on July 9, 2020, our panel of employment attorneys discussed the key issues and most frequently asked questions related to COVID-19 in the workplace.
Topics covered include:
- Return-To-Work Plans: Who to return and when, high-risk and anxious workers, COVID-related childcare obligations and refusals to return
- Workplace Safety Considerations: Symptom screenings, confidentiality protocols, workplace modifications and employee nonworking time concerns
- Workforce Issues: Leaves of absence, disability issues, supplemental income considerations, furloughs, layoffs, rehiring protocols and teleworking issues
- Public Health Obligations: Handling potential or actual exposures, lockdown and notification procedures, reporting requirements and privacy protections
Our panelists offered practical solutions and best practices for navigating these complex issues and mitigating potential liability. This was an essential webinar for general counsel, human resource professionals and business owners.
