With Governor Inslee’s announcement that that the state is moving toward a statewide reopening date on June 30, 2021, many organizations are reviewing plans to return to their physical offices. After navigating a remote workforce for just over a year, employers face the unique challenge of preparing both their workplace and their workforce.

The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers to consider various new policies as employees return to the workplace. To properly navigate the complexities of these COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative, practical solutions.

Discussion topics include:

  • Safety protocols in the workplace.
  • Strategies for communicating the transition with your workforce and your legal obligations for accommodations.
  • Preparing vaccination policies for an in-person workplace.
  • Reasonable accommodation obligations.

We will host a Q&A session as time allows – feel free to submit your questions in advance when registering. If you are unable to attend the live webinar, please register to receive an email link to the recording.
