Unfortunately, COVID-19 cases are spiking as millions of students and parents prepare for a return to in-person schooling in the fall. As many jurisdictions are considering reinstituting lockdowns and mandatory masking, employers must continue to adapt their policies 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:

  • A refresher on best practices for handling positive cases in the workplace and new requirements under new OSHA guidelines
  • The latest update on mandatory vaccination policies and legal challenges
  • 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
