First came the virus … then came the lawyers. How are you preparing for both?
As more employees return to the workplace, your HR department needs to take the correct steps now to protect employees from COVID-19 – and to protect the organization from the huge spike in virus lawsuits. But this has created lots of confusing and legally risky questions:
When must you let employees take FFCRA leave? What kind of testing and safety measures are required? Can you legally tell employees to return to work – or to keep working remotely? What’s your liability if a worker or customer gets sick? When a vaccine comes out, can you require employees to get it?
At the same time, your HR department needs to understand the new rapid-fire changes coming from Congress and federal agencies – new leave laws, safety requirements, wage rules and even changes to your I-9 duties.
Discover the answers to the questions that are keeping employers and HR up at night. Coronavirus & the Workplace explains the best (and legally safe) steps that your organization must take now in response to this worldwide threat.
