During the early part of summer, as COVID-19 was subsiding, a large number of employers across the country began to accelerate plans to fully reopen their offices, with many targeting a return-to-work date in early September.
And then along came the Delta variant. Seemingly at the flip of a switch, the Federal government has resurrected certain mask mandates and invoked a tone of caution that is reminiscent of early 2021, when COVID-19 was peaking.
What is the current law as it relates to office safety? Can employers require that all employees return to their offices? Can employers require that all employees be vaccinated? How should employers respond to employee requests to continue telecommuting into the indefinite future? And how else will the pandemic impact employers in the coming months?
On Wednesday, August 18th, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Smith & Downey will be sponsoring a webinar to address these and other COVID-19 related questions. As always, there is no charge to attend this presentation.
