Employers may have thought their employment challenges would lessen as the economy began to re-open and non-essential employees began returning to the workplace.  However, re-opening has highlighted additional complexities in managing a workforce during the pandemic.  This session will help you: 

  • Gain insight on considerations to be made in returning employees to the worksite 
  • Promote safety at the worksite  
  • Know where to look for guidance for isolating and returning employees after experiencing symptoms, an exposure, or a potential exposure  
  • Understand COVID-related workplace claims that have already been filed and the landmines employers should lookout for to avoid such claims 


Note: This series is available as 3 standalone webinars or as a full series.   For more information on the full series, please click here.
