Agenda for COVID Compliance 2022

Your attorney trainers will tackle the most thorny aspects of COVID compliance:

Workplace Safety

Get a clear plan for how to deal with vaccination requirements, tests, policies, and recordkeeping.

Topics include:

  • Vaccines and mandates. The best (and most legally smart) rules for right now.
  • Your policies. What to have in writing, and what to leave out.
  • Testing. If you allow a testing option, know the logistical and legally safe steps.
  • Positive tests and sickness. How to respond to both, in the short and long term.
  • Masks. The CDC, state, and local rules are confusing—discover the right policy for today.
  • Recordkeeping. How to collect and retain data to avoid ADA and OSHA trouble.

Understand what accommodations are required, including FMLA coverage and privacy requirements.

Topics include:

  • Accommodations and exceptions. Know what you must allow, and where you can draw the line.
  • Leaves of absence. What’s required for sick leave, positive tests, vaccines, and side effects.
  • FMLA. Learn where FMLA leave fits into all this.
  • Remote work. When telework is required, and when you can call them back in.
  • Anti-retaliation. A hidden trouble spot that’s tripping up lots of companies.
  • Privacy. Know when you can ask about vax status, infections, and how to store documents.
Wage & Pay

Discover when paid leave is required by state law and new federal proposals, as well as who is responsible for testing costs and reimbursements.

Topics include:

  • Paid leave. Know what’s required and what is optional, based on state law and new federal proposals.
  • Vax and testing time. What federal and state laws say—and who pays for testing.
  • State and local requirements. How to handle reimbursements, leave, and more.
  • Off-the-clock work. The remote explosion has triggered a rise in off-the-clock lawsuits.
  • Other tricky COVID-related landmines. From unemployment to payroll and more.
