As companies continue to bring employees back to work and ramp up operations, there are myriad issues to consider during the hiring and re-hiring process, as well as when determining if current conditions do not warrant the retention of the entire workforce. This webinar will focus on important hiring, firing, benefits, and immigration considerations in the COVID-19 pandemic, including:

  • Testing and other inquiries of applicants
  • Important decisions when bringing back or further furloughing employees
  • Determining what benefits are owed to a rehired employee
  • Unique benefits considerations arising out of the CARES Act amendments
  • The I-9 immigration process in a virtual environment
  • The impact of recent Presidential Proclamations on travel and other issues
