As infections relating to the COVID-19 pandemic decrease, and the number of employees who are vaccinated increase, many employers look forward to returning to business as usual. But what does that look like in a hopefully soon-to-be post-pandemic world? Many employees have been working from home for over a year—albeit with varying degrees of success. How does the past year change the legal and strategic analysis for an employer considering employee requests to work remotely after other employees have returned to the office?
Hear the panelists untangle the various legal considerations governing such requests, provide guidance for how to respond, discuss best practices for maintaining a workplace that is physically safe and consistent with OSHA's COVID-19 guidance, and offer tips for updating or preparing effective telework policies.
