Reopening the Workplace
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Many workplaces have either reopened or are planning to reopen soon. These workplaces may look significantly different than before: telework; face masks and other safety gear; new office floorplans for social distancing; altered work schedules to minimize crowding. The legal landscape is also different: the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and new considerations in a COVID-19 context under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Family Medical Leave Act, the Oregon Sick Leave Law, and state and federal laws prohibiting retaliation. These are uncharted waters and employers need to be prepared to handle the “new normal.” Trial Lawyer Laura Salerno Owens will answer frequently asked questions to help you stay informed of critical workplace issues.
