As the nation eagerly awaits for guidance from federal, state and local authorities on how to safely re-open businesses, many employers are wisely using this time to plan ahead for employee re-entry. A successful “back-to-work” strategy requires a holistic approach, as we consider new protocols for personnel, physical workplace and common areas modifications, and other safety precautions. The heightened attention to employee health due to the coronavirus outbreak also brings up questions relating to privacy and data protection.
To assist employers, Davis+Gilbert will be hosting a webinar with an interdisciplinary line-up of attorneys to address key considerations when planning for re-entry, from a legal, logistical, health, privacy and employee morale perspective. We will answer questions such as:
- How should an employer decide when employees come back to the office, who comes back first and how to keep them safe?
- What are the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) implications of conducting temperature checks or COVID-19 screening questionnaires?
- How should employers work with landlords/building management?
- How should employers prepare for any potential claims that may arise?
