COVID Concerns:
Leaves, Screening, and Reopening

presented by Joseph T. Ortiz


Federal and State governments are in some cases providing conflicting messages and HR has the unenviable task of navigating the orders and other measures to protect Americans and provide employee’s rights and protection.

This confusion is unprecedented and disruptions to business are causing a significant impact. From navigating leaves to dealing with reductions in staff and return to work protocols, HR professionals are getting whiplash from the back and forth. Regardless, employers need to know what their responsibilities are, what resources are available to them and how to actively lead while business and the economy is in flux.
