The COVID-19 Pandemic and Labor Law Issues in the Workplace
The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers all over the world to consider various new policies as economies reopen and businesses consider requiring many of their workers to return to the workplace. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions.
Knowledge of labor law is essential for in-house counsel and human resources and business professionals, whether or not there are unions in the workplace. The National Labor Relations Act applies to all employers, and the COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a variety of workplace issues that are governed by the NLRA.
Discussion topics include:
Labor law issues that should be considered in every discipline and discharge decision
Handling employee demonstrations, rallies, and walkouts, as well as handbilling and picketing at the workplace
Ensuring that company policies and handbooks comply with the NLRA
Union organizing in response to COVID-19 safety and related concerns and other union organizing trends
Labor law issues related to the CARES Act
We will also conduct a Q&A session with the speakers at the end of the webinar. Please submit your questions in advance during registration.
