[Webinar] Returning to Work Strategies: Employment and Workplace Safety Implications of COVID-19

On Thursday, May 7, 2020 from 2 PM – 3:30 PM Eastern, join members of Conn Maciel Carey LLP’s multi-disciplinary COVID-19 Taskforce for a complimentary webinar: Returning to Work Strategies – Employment and Workplace Safety Implications of COVID-19.

May 7 CaptureAs the federal government and states begin to relax shutdown and stay-at-home orders and non-essential businesses begin to resume or ramp-up operations, employers need to plan for the safe and healthy return of their employees, customers, and guests back into the workplace.  During this webinar, participants will hear from members of Conn Maciel Carey’s COVID-19 Task Force as they discuss how to develop and implement a Return-to-Work Plan.

Participants will learn about:

  • How to recall furloughed employees to qualify for loan forgiveness under the Paycheck Protection Program
  • New federal paid leave laws and their application to employees returning from furlough
  • Navigating the FLSA requirements for exempt employees who may be performing non-exempt work as work ramps up
  • Preventing third-party interference from labor unions and organizing attempts
  • COVID-19 Infection/Exposure Control Plans
  • Pre-shift Health Screening Protocols and best practices (e.g., temperature checks and health/symptom questionnaires)
  • Effective engineering and administrative controls to mitigate potential exposures to COVID-19 in the workplace
  • Decisions about Personal Protective Equipment, Respirators, Face Masks, and Face Coverings
  • Recording and Reporting to OSHA and workforce about confirmed employee COVID-19 infections
