Overview (Program Summary)
Everyone is hopeful that the workplace will return to “normal” as soon as possible—but what will the “new normal” look like? Join us for a data-driven discussion (courtesy of recent Pew Research Center surveys) of what the real impacts of the pandemic have been and will be on working Americans, how some companies such as Salesforce are tackling these challenges as they look ahead, and the key legal issues companies are and will be facing during this transition.
Key topics include:
· How has working from home been successful vs. unsuccessful, and for which categories of employees?
· How can employers assist in transitioning their employees either back into the office or in a permanent remote setting post-COVID?
· How can companies handle accommodations post-COVID under the Americans with Disabilities Act and corresponding state laws?
· How can companies adjust policies and procedures and ensure legal compliance resulting from employees who moved during the pandemic or who may want to move if remote work is allowed to continue? We will discuss the various legal issues that can result from remote workers including tax compliance, workers’ compensation, and state and local leave laws.
