Return to Work Webinar Series for Employers: Preparing to Reopen



The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is leading some employers to consider extreme, and often unnecessary, new policies in anticipation of the eventual return to work. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions.

In response to the challenges that employers now face, McDermott is offering a six-part webinar series that will take a deep dive into all of the issues at stake–from workplace safety to employee privacy, as well as strategies to mitigate risk and respond to the inevitable surge in litigation. By the end of our program, you will possess the tools necessary to bring actionable solutions back to your organization and protect your most critical assets: people and reputation.

Please join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm (EDT) starting Thursday, May 14.

The first module in our toolkit focuses on transition plans for employers preparing to reopen. Topics include:

  • Implementing return to work transition teams, roles, and monitoring protocols
  • Developing a transition plan, including regulations and guidance to consider, and giving proper notice to employees
  • Preparing your policies to ensure compliance, with a focus on critical policies and COVID-19-specific policies that need to be developed

We will also conduct a Q&A session with the speakers at the end of the webinar. Please submit your questions in advance during registration.

MCLE credit is pending in California, Illinois and New York. Attendees who request credit in other states will receive a Uniform Certificate of Attendance, which can be used to claim credit as permitted by applicable state MCLE rules.
