Course Description

With federal and state stay-at-home orders finally lifted, and as businesses navigate the strict conditions of Phase One reopening, employers are faced with a difficult road ahead complying with new, and oftentimes complicated rules to protect employees and the public. And while the economy struggles to get back to business, there are real considerations necessary for providing a safe environment that prevents the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.

This live webcast will focus on employers’ next steps in enabling workers to return to work safely:

  • Understanding your role in following current guidance from CDC FEMA, ADA
  • Staying compliant with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA)
  • COVID-19 related workers’ compensation issues
  • Minimizing liability while maintaining productivity
  • How to adjust to the “new normal” workplace and what that looks like
  • Implementing policies to facilitate a safe return to work – are they enforceable?
  • How reductions in staffing and wages can impact potential reductions in PPP loan forgiveness amounts

This webinar will be helpful for CEOs, CFOs, CAOs, Executive Directors, HR Directors, HR Managers, and Payroll Managers.

The information presented will be current as of the time of the broadcast.
