As the globe grapples with increasing challenges to sustaining “business as usual” in their enterprises, our team of Employment, Employee Benefits, Health and Privacy & Cybersecurity lawyers invite you to join us for important and urgent guidance on a developing pandemic.

Over a 90 minute period, we will cover:

  • Developing strategies around remote work facilitation including: responsibilities to quarantined and/or sick employees; work from home arrangements and social distancing; absences from work, paid time off, sick leave; discrimination, harassment and retaliation concerns; the impact on health plans and savings accounts, as well as health and safety considerations.
  • Mitigating Privacy and Cybersecurity risk by examining: privacy issues in sharing personal information of employees, guests or customers with third parties, including government agencies, and guidelines for sharing personal information for COVID-19 response when the data was originally collected for a different purpose. We will also discuss whether, when and how to inform individual that your company has shared their personal information for public health purposes.
  • HIPAA compliance considerations including: reporting to public health authorities; informing individuals who may have been in contact with a patient; discussing COVID-19 cases with the media; performing data analytics; and heightened security awareness.
