Overview (Program Summary)
COVID-19 has hit companies in a wide variety of ways, presenting a number of novel issues that are often difficult to resolve. In-house lawyers are being asked to figure these issues out on the fly, sometimes with little definitive regulatory guidance. This webinar will be a discussion of questions that members of the Small Law Network are grappling with. The intent is that participants will be able to benchmark how other organizations are handling these challenging issues. This will be an interactive webinar where audience participation is encouraged so that attendees can learn from one another. We also encourage participants to submit their questions in advance of the webinar, but they may also ask their questions during the webinar. To submit a question, click on this link.
What challenging COVID-19 related issues have you been dealing with that you would like to benchmark? These issues can be related to anything. Some examples are:
- We have an employee who works in a state where masks are mandated in the work setting, but we do not feel that it is safe for our employee to wear a mask given the other hazards of this person’s job (i.e. the mask will become soiled and cause the person to inhale potentially toxic fumes). What should we do?
- My organization is using an automated scanner to check employees and customers for high temperatures before entering our premises. I have concerns about where the information is stored, who monitors the scanner, and what happens if an employee or customer has a high temperature. What are others doing to address this issue?
- How are others attempting to limit liability for their organizations against claims that an employee or customer contracted the coronavirus on their premises?
Please submit your question here by September 11, 2020.
