Event Details

The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes including non-profits. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers to consider various new policies as workers return to the workplace and the vaccination process is implemented. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions. This webinar will explore the most pressing questions employers are asking—including whether employers can (and should) mandate the vaccine—as well as the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in the workplace and suggested best practices.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Ongoing development of COVID-19 in the workplace and employer and employee responsibilities
  • Latest response from the EEOC on Families First Coronavirus Response Act and Consolidated Appropriations Act and what that means for your organization
  • Can/should employers mandate the COVID-19 vaccine with their workforce?
  • Potential legal implications with mandatory vs. voluntary vaccine policies
  • Reasonable accommodation considerations arising out of a workplace COVID-19 vaccine policy
  • Guidelines regarding employees returning to work and navigating situations when employees need an accommodation
