COVID-19 Webinar: Return to Work Strategies for Employers

As “safer at home” and “shelter in place” orders are lifted, employers need to develop effective and legally compliant strategies for bringing employees back to work. This panel discussion addressed the various legal and practical issues, and risks, that arise when bringing employees back from furlough or layoffs, as well as transitioning employees back from telework to “on site” work. The session covered the latest medical and legal guidance on maintaining a safe workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as various laws to keep in mind (and legal pitfalls to avoid) in developing your business’s return to work strategy.

Moderator: Kara E. Shea

Panelists: Todd P. Photopulos, David L. Johnson, Timothy M. Threadgill and Clarence B. Creech, M.D.
