2021 Update for Employers – Vaccines, Return to Work, and the New Administration
February 18, 2021
9:00am - 10:15am EDT
As the much-anticipated COVID vaccines are now being distributed in carefully defined phases, businesses that have acclimated to the remote work environment will now begin plans to return employees to the workplace. The pandemic is by no means behind us, but the coming months may see a gradual return of employees to offices, schools, and other work locations. Employers would be well-advised to begin now to reexamine return-to-work and accommodations policies, including how to comply with the several laws relating to employee vaccinations. A new administration in Washington, D.C. brings new priorities in addressing labor and employment issues. The Biden Administration is looking beyond COVID and has already identified several priorities that promise to shape the employment law landscape for at least the next 4 years.
- What employers need to know about vaccines
We’ll discuss the pros and cons of requiring employees to get vaccinated, accommodation issues, considerations and options for employers that want to facilitate employee vaccinations, and potential liability issues.
- Return to work issues
As vaccination becomes more accessible, more employers will be ramping up their plans for returning employees to the workplace. We’ll discuss dealing with reluctant employees, reasonable accommodations, and workplace safety, among other considerations.
- Employment-related initiatives of the Biden Administration
We’ll discuss the latest developments with COVID relief legislation, as well as longer-term initiatives relating to minimum wage, arbitration agreements, unions, paid leave, independent contractors, and agency enforcement investigations.
