As the pandemic continues, there are early signs that some employers will be permitted to start bringing employees back to workplaces as early as May 20th in Connecticut. Under what conditions will employers be permitted to do so? What risks exist for employers that are opening back up?

In this complimentary webinar — open and appropriate to all employers — we will examine various issues that businesses may encounter as employees return to the workplace, and strategies to minimize their risk.

Presenters will discuss topics including:

  • Preparing return to work policies and procedures
  • Reinstating employees and returning employees from layoffs and furloughs
  • PTO/benefit/leave considerations
  • Workplace safety considerations
  • State/federal guidelines on returning to work
  • Remote work procedures and reasonable accommodation procedures
  • Workplace screening (including temperature checks)
  • Contact Tracing

WHEN: May 14, 2020, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT

Continued Legal Education (CLE)

This CLE program has been approved in accordance with the requirements of the New York CLE Board for a maximum of 1.0 credit hour, of which 1.0 can be applied toward the Professional Practice requirement. This program is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys.

Neither the Connecticut Judicial Branch nor the Commission on Minimum Continuing Legal Education approves or accredits CLE providers or activities. It is the opinion of Shipman & Goodwin that this activity qualifies for one hour toward your annual CLE requirement in Connecticut, including zero hour(s) of ethics/professionalism, but is subject to change based on actual instruction/attendance time.

We reserve the right to register only clients and prospective clients of the firm.
