The unprecedented nature of the Coronavirus pandemic brought forward many questions about infectious disease policy and procedure in the workplace. Companies used a variety of tactics to keep operations going and employees active during the pandemic and many are still working on bringing employees back to the workplace.
To help human resources managers take a more strategic approach to their infectious disease policy and procedure, Financial Poise™ and co-producer West LegalEdcenter™ will present a live webinar The Impact of Communicable Diseases, Including Coronavirus, On the Workplace as part of its series, Protecting Employee Assets: The Lifecycle of the Employee Relationship, July 13 at 2:00 p.m. CST. Gary Savine, principal, Savine Employment Law, Ltd. along with a panel of legal and human resources experts will explore topics such as: workplace absence, biometrics, how to manage remote work and workplace communication issues.
“In February of 2020, as news of the pandemic became more urgent, many of us in the field began reviewing legal aspects of workplace communicable disease policy,” says Gary Savine, principal, Savine Employment Law, Ltd. “However, the pandemic turned out to be a longer haul than many of us thought and challenged what we knew about infectious disease policy and procedure in the workplace. Companies had to scramble to find a fair and functional approach to managing their workforces. The newness of everything has left us all with questions ranging from ‘What do I do if my employer hasn’t communicated a return to the office?’ to ‘Will my health data be secure if I have to submit temperature readings every day?’ or even ‘What happens if I have to return home due to another wave?’ Now is a good time for HR pros to get more informed and learn from the attorneys and human resources management experts who have been on the frontlines of these issues.”
