What Do You Say Now COVID?  Heading Back to Work in a Brave New World.

Speakers: Paul Finamore and Lisa Settles of Pessin Katz Law, P.A.

With the increasing optimism associated with vaccinations and the potential return to life as we once knew it, employers are planning for a return to work by a workforce that, for almost a year, has been able to work from home in pajamas without supervisors watching them.  Managing the process requires employers to keep abreast of activities from all of the regulatory agencies not only amidst a pandemic, but also a time of unprecedented civil and political unrest.  The webinar will address some of the latest guidance out of the regulatory agencies, but will also discuss the new frontier of addressing political discourse in the office with employees having to return to a structured office environment after months of freedom at home. Managing this return necessarily means addressing conflict, potential claims, and legal challenges. The webinar will provide takeaways for employers and claims professionals as to best practices for employees returning to work and potential strategies for reducing claims and litigation.
