Return to Work Webinar Series for Employers | Planning for Reopening: Preparing the Workplace and Workforce


The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers all over the world to consider various new policies as employees return to the workplace. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative, practical solutions.

With US President Joe Biden’s recent announcement that all adults in the United States will be eligible for the vaccine on April 19, many organizations are announcing plans to return to their physical offices. After navigating a remote workforce for just over a year, employers face the unique challenge of preparing both their workplace and their workforce.

Discussion topics include:

  • Safety protocols in the workplace.
  • Strategies for communicating the transition with your workforce and your legal obligations for accommodations.
  • Preparing vaccination policies for an in-person workplace.
  • Reasonable accommodation obligations.

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.
