Return to Work - Managing New Challenges in the Workplace - McDermott

Navigating Uncertainty in a COVID/Post-COVID World Series | Part Three: Return to Work – Managing New Challenges in the Workplace


COVID-19 has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. As employers adjust to the “new normal” in the workplace, they still face many challenges, including evolving legal obligations around COVID-related leave and workplace accommodation requests as well as issues related to employee off-duty conduct, travel and safety concerns and potential litigation. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions to mitigate risk and protect your most critical assets: people and reputation.

Our webinar will cover some of the key issues at the forefront of the workplace today, including:

  • Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) and Department of Labor (DOL) guidance on paid sick leave and family and medical leave requests
  • Accommodation requests, including remote work and extended absences
  • The current wave of COVID-related employment litigation and what to anticipate in the future
  • Employee noncompliance with social distancing guidelines provided by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

General minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) credit in Illinois.

Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit for this program is pending in California and New York. A Universal Multi-State Credit Certificate of Attendance will be provided to attendees who request MCLE credit in all other jurisdictions. To be eligible to earn a CLE certificate, you must attend the entire webinar and provide your bar number. Credit for partial attendance will not be provided. You must join via the Zoom application – not by dialing in via telephone.

We want to ensure we address the issues of most importance to our participants, and we encourage you to submit your questions for the panel in advance during registration.
