COVID-19 cases are spiking even as thousands of Chicagoland employees are preparing for a return to in-person work in the fall. Employers are rapidly adjusting as city, state and federal authorities have announced and are considering new masking, testing and vaccination policies in response to the ongoing pandemic, and particularly the sudden impact that the Delta (and other) variants may have on fall and winter planning. This webinar will discuss:

  • The latest guidance and mandates on safe workplace practices from City of Chicago, Cook County, State of Illinois and federal public health regulators
  • The latest update on mandatory vaccination policies, accommodations and legal challenges
  • A refresher on best practices for handling positive cases in the workplace and new requirements under new EEOC and OSHA guidelines
  • Strategies and tips for planning for back to school season and potential legal issues arising out of leave and work from home requests from parents
