Best Practices for Managing Return to Work after COVID

Recorded On: 06/18/2020

Litigation drains company resources.  During these unprecedented times, Human Resources and Management are being challenged with employee and policy questions about returning to work.  Join Labor & Employment attorneys from Varnum PLC for this one hour webinar where we will discuss legal compliance and Best Practices to avoid litigation as employees return to onsite work.  Discussion topics include:

  • Do employees have a choice to remain off work?
  • What are the employers reporting obligations to the Unemployment Insurance Agency?
  • Does the employer have an obligation to accommodate employees underlying medical conditions that do not rise to the level of a disability?
  • How should the employer respond to employee concerns about safety?
  • What should I do if an employee comes to work with symptoms of COVID-19?
  • What steps should the employer take if an employee test positive?
  • Whether employees on FFCRA and FMLA leave or receiving an ADA accommodation are subject to layoff or separation?

This fast paced discussion will provide the tools you need to develop workable policies and procedures that fit your workforce.  

This FREE webinar will be recorded and available on-demand shortly after live webinar.
