“Employers are walking a tightrope in organizing a return to work, fraught with liability and risk” – CNBC

As recent news reports show, even as the pandemic continues to cool down, COVID-related lawsuits are heating up. Courts and the “litigation machine” are getting cranked up again, and that means you need to take steps to prevent the new risks related to return-to-work policies … vaccine rules … wage-and-hour decisions … medical accommodations … employee leave … safety policies … and other end-of-pandemic landmines.

As one lawyer said, “It will be open season on employers.” Is your organization prepared to handle a COVID claim? Do you know how to prevent them?
