COVID LEGAL CONCERNS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
*** New Date***
The webinar was postponed due to Hurricane Ida. It’s back with a new date. Register today.
Employers everywhere are grappling with the effects of Covid-19 and the new variants that are arising. Employers are faced with decisions on whether they should impose a vaccine mandate, whether they should return to virtual work or whether they should create a hybrid environment. Many employers do not understand their rights as it relates to mandating policies in their respective companies. They also do not understand the pitfalls that could create liability from employees and visitors.
This presentation will discuss some of the decisions that employers are currently making during the pandemic, some considerations that they should make and some of the liability issues that will likely come up. We will address employees who claim an exception to mandates and discuss what employers can and cannot do as it relates to mandates. We will also discuss some of the more pressing employment law issues that we can expect to come up as we continue to grapple with this pandemic as a state and as a nation.
