WEBINAR DOWNLOAD: Need-to-Know COVID-19 Employment Issues for the New Year
As we transition from 2020 to 2021, COVID-19 related employment issues unfortunately will not end. In fact, in the new year, employers will be faced with a whole new host of issues, including:
- What should employers do when employees need time off for COVID-19 related reasons in the new year, with the scheduled expiration of the leave provisions of the FFCRA on December 31?
- The COVID-19 vaccine is coming, but can employers require employees to be vaccinated when it is available?
- Is remote work here to stay, and could it now be deemed a reasonable accommodation under the ADA as a matter of course?
