Return to work: what should we expect? Our 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.” Laura Salerno Owens and Kyle Busse will answer frequently asked questions on workplace reopening to help you advise your clients on these critical workplace issues.
