Why should you attend?
Given the current COVID-19 Pandemic, Employers are more than ever looking towards the regulatory agencies for guidance to be able to have their employees return to the workforce safely. According to The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) is responsible “To assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women;
· By authorizing enforcement of the standards developed under the Act
· By assisting and encouraging the States in their efforts to assure safe and healthful working conditions
· By providing for research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health
In response to COVID-19, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated and/or provided guidance related to the current employment concerns specific to the pandemic. The guidance offers helpful insights into how the agencies are balancing changes to normalcy, along with legal requirements posed by a variety of employment laws.
With the mixed messages from the medical, political, and regulatory agencies, Employers are now confused and have mixed feelings about transitioning their workforce to the new normal. It is time now to guide Employers on the most effective way to return to work safely and have employees feel confident that Employers have done all the necessary actions to keep them safe. This includes employees and other stakeholders.
