The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in workplace closures for over a year. Due to the increase in vaccinations and declining infection rates, many states are lifting stay-at-home and business closure mandates so that the country can return to business as usual. To assist employers in office re-opening, this webinar will address the following issues:

  • The importance of complying with EEOC requirements in connection with mandating workforce vaccinations and proof of vaccinations.
  • Compliance with OSHA guidance in maintaining a safe workforce upon office re-opening.
  • The role of state and local law in implementing a return-to-work strategy.
  • Reconfiguring the office layout to promote safety, requiring masks, sanitation and other practical issues.
  • Employer liability for workplace COVID-19 exposure.

This 60-minute intermediate-level webinar will help employers understand office re-opening issues post-COVID.
