Returning to the Office: The Legal Requirements and Practical Considerations Employers Must Consider in the "New Normal"

06.30.2021 | 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. PST

As COVID-19 cases continue to decline and a majority of the adult population has been vaccinated, employers across the country are preparing to reopen their offices and bring their employees back. Whether the COVID-19 crisis continues to be characterized as a pandemic or not, employers will continue to be challenged with issues related to work hours and schedules, vaccination policies, reasonable accommodations, and of course, the ever-evolving guidelines related to workplace health and safety.

On June 30th, join Sheppard Mullin’s Brian Murphy, Adam Rosenthal, Lindsay Stone and Bobby Foster as they co-present a practical webinar guiding business owners, HR professionals, and other attorneys through the legal issues employers will face with some or all employees back in the office. Brian and Adam are co-authors of Castle’s definitive employment law publication, the Employer’s Guide To COVID-19 And Emerging Workplace Issues: Year 2  and will be referencing it throughout the program. The Employer’s Guide is the first go-to, one-stop book of its kind and will include updates electronically through December 31, 2021.

Topics will include:

  • CDC’s Guidance for Safe Practices in the Workplace
  • EEOC Guidance on Vaccinations and the ADA
  • Fed/OSHA Workplace Safety Practices
  • Cal/OSHA Workplace Safety Practices
  • New York Workplace Safety Practices
  • Practical Considerations, Beyond Safety, in the Post-Pandemic Workplace
