As States begin to lift stay-at-home orders, nonprofit organizations need to start planning for re-opening their worksites, safely, slowly and carefully.

In this 90-minute webinar you will learn about:

  • what kind of guidance government agencies are providing to safely reopen the workplace
  • what safety and physical distancing precautions you should be considering before re-opening
  • what steps to consider before re-engaging volunteers
  • potential legal liability in connection with COVID-19, the workplace and your employees; and how to minimize legal risk

The webinar will address:

  • What do you do if an employee refuses to return to work out of fear for their safety?
  • What types of reasonable accommodations must an employer provide?
  • Does your organization have a COVID-19 task force in place?

A follow-up webinar on May 26th will address your questions. There are several ways you may submit your questions:
