Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About: Employee Speech During and After COVID-19
Recorded On: 08/27/2020
As the spread of COVID-19 has slowed in Michigan, many employers are anxiously preparing their workplaces and offices to reopen and employees are anticipating their return to work. Other employers have already reopened and have allowed employees to gradually return to work. While most people are hoping for a “return to normalcy,” discussions surrounding COVID-19 are likely to continue over the coming months. What will employees say both in and out of the workplace regarding this potentially polarizing topic, how should employers handle challenges presented by that discourse, and what can they do to maintain a cohesive workforce along the way? Join Clark Hill attorneys David Weissman and Stephanie Romeo as they address employees’ rights and best practices for employers in the area of COVID-19 and related workplace speech.
This webinar will be recorded and available on-demand shortly after live webinar.
