Although it remains unclear when and how regional, state, and local stay-at-home orders will start to loosen and/or lift, as we look forward to better days, employers should start preparing now to be ready for the eventual transition of employees back to the workplace.

Join us on April 29 for a forward-looking webinar with NP employment attorneys across the nation, as they consider a multitude of latent employment and OSHA issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and related stay-at-home and shutdown orders, and discuss advance planning for employers well before re-opening businesses or operations. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Ensuring the safe return of employees to business locations, the safety and health of employees while in those locations, and creating a “new normal” for safety culture with OSHA regulations and public health guidance in mind
  • Guidelines for implementing a gradual and/or phased-in return to work process and analyzing potential ongoing telecommuting/remote working arrangements
  • ADA restrictions, including on employee testing, and/or inquiries of employees who have recovered from COVID-19
  • Considerations to prevent a relapse in exposure or the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace
  • Factors to consider when rehiring laid-off employees, including I-9 obligations and employee benefit considerations
