Getting Back to Business Webinar Series (Part 1)

Planning and Best Practices for Employers in a Changed Workplace

Getting Back to Business Webinar Series: 
Planning and Best Practices for Employers in a Changed Workplace

As states across the country start to loosen restrictions, businesses must start preparing their return to work plans while being mindful of the myriad of uncertainties surrounding testing, worker and customer safety, and evolving guidance from federal and state governmental agencies.

Join us for this two-part webinar series designed specifically for our clients and friends to address the legal and practical issues employers should be considering as they develop action plans for resuming operations.  The two sessions will synthesize the confusing and sometimes conflicting guidance provided by federal, state, and local government and public health and safety agencies into an integrated multijurisdictional presentation, with our experienced speakers highlighting state law differences on relevant topics.  We will also offer attendees the chance to participate in anonymous polls so that they can confidentially communicate their positions and approaches to certain issues, and we will share the results so that all attendees can understand trends in industry approaches.

Session One: Thursday, May 21, 2020
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. ET
2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. CT
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. PT

  • COVID-19 Response & Action Plan for Return to Work
  • Ongoing Compliance With Evolving OSHA and CDC Guidance
