USA: Reimagine Your Workplace: Guidance for Manufacturing Industry Litigation Avoidance – Jackson Lewis Webinar
Date: 28 July
Time: 3:00pm Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 30 minutes
COVID-19 has transformed the workplace irrevocably, forcing employers to adopt creative solutions to protect their employees in a legal landscape that continues to evolve almost daily. Manufacturing employers face additional challenges as they reevaluate factory safety protocols, while simultaneously attempting to avoid ongoing disruption in the form of pandemic-related employment litigation. Join Jackson Lewis P.C. attorneys in a three-part webinar series that examines current employment law issues and explores some of the ways in which manufacturers can proactively shield themselves from potential liability. Topics include: Disability and Leave of Absence Management, including accommodation issues and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act; Environment, Health and Safety, including claims involving failure to furnish a safe workplace and negligence; Employment and Tort Claims, including issues resulting from reductions in force and COVID-19-related claims of discrimination, retaliation and harassment; Immigration Compliance, including verifying employment eligibility in a newly-virtual environment and preparing for an expected post-COVID upswing in I-9 audits and worksite investigations; Labor, including violations of the NLRA’s “abnormally dangerous” rule and union grievances resulting from reductions in force; Wage and Hour, including employee misclassification issues resulting from a newly-remote workforce and COVID-19-related “failure to pay” claims.
