As companies across Texas started to reopen on May 1, they are facing numerous short- and long-term challenges, from ensuring their employees are safe to making sure they comply with shifting state and federal guidance. In this CLE webinar, we will cover what employers need to know before and immediately after reopening the workplace, including:

  • CDC, OSHA, DOL, EEOC and other state and federal guidance regarding workplace safety protocols, social distancing measures, physical workspace modifications, and COVID-19 screening and tracing protocol
  • Strategic and administrative aspects of bringing workers back into the workplace
  • Anticipated challenges for employers as workers return, including wage and hour considerations
  • How to handle an employee who refuses to return to the workplace
  • What to do when an employee engages in activity that increases the risk of COVID-19 exposure outside of work but is scheduled to return to the workplace
