Webinar to look at ‘COVID-19 Safeguard Requirements for Your Workplace’ July 23

The Association of Corporate Counsel-Michigan Chapter (ACC-MI) and Warner Norcross + Judd will present the first webinar in a three-part series, titled “COVID-19 Safeguard
Requirements for Your Workplace,” designed to inform in-house counsel on the important and specific issues facing employers today.

The webinar will take place Thursday, July 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will begin with a 50-minute presentation followed by two half-hour interactive breakout sessions.

Warner attorneys Ed Bardelli, Amanda Fielder, Jonathan Kok, and Steve Palazzolo will present an overview of the safeguard requirements for reopening a workplace.

Businesses have faced myriad practical and legal employment challenges as they implement measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while minimizing the economic impact.

Executive orders provide guidance for employers on how to maintain compliance, yet are vague or silent in many areas, thus resulting in a variety of employer questions. The webinar will
review the safeguard requirements and also discuss potential employment litigation issues relating to terminations and furloughs, workplace safety, discrimination and wage and hour issues.
