PUBLIC WORKSHOPS 2020

WEBINAR

This workshop will now take the format of a Webinar.

Corona

Corona Virus and the workplace


We will explain your responsibilities related to employee education, leave of absence, shift changes, remote work, related wage-and-hour issues and potential reduction in forces.

  • Employers have an important role to play in managing the novel coronavirus outbreak that has sickened increasing numbers.
  • Employers can no longer take a wait-and-see approach to the coronavirus (or COVID-19). While it’s not time to panic… it’s time to plan.
  • It is important to know what to do from a legal perspective in terms of paid time off and sick leave.
  • The fast-spreading coronavirus presents several unique legal and practical challenges to employers.
  • Every employer needs to develop a plan to protect employees, prevent legal liability and address how work will be done in the event of business disruptions.
  • What changes are needed now to your pay and leave policies?
  • May employees refuse to work or travel due to infection fears?
  • May we require employees to stay home if they appear sick?
  • May we ever ask employees about their potential illness or their travel?

Regardless of size, every organisation must be able to answer these types of questions and quickly respond to unexpected changes in this environment.

  • Dealing with various obstacles during the process and hearing
  • Determining outcome
  • Alternatives to dismissal
