CAHRA Monthly Meeting: Returning to Work & the New Normal

We will discuss the legal considerations with returning to the office or other in person work setting, such as health and safety, vaccination, employees that are reluctant to return, and other potential challenges for employers returning to an in-person environment. We will talk about potential hybrid model schedules and the legal compliance aspects of those arrangements. As always, there will hopefully be some time for Q&A at the end. We encourage participants to submit questions ahead of time to [email protected] so we can make sure those issues are discussed. SPEAKER: H. Wayne Young of Friday, Eldredge & Clark, LLP H.
