Preparing for Pandemic-Related Employment Disputes
The coronavirus pandemic forced many companies to execute employment decisions quickly out of necessity, amidst newly evolving administrative guidance and laws. With many workers anxious about returning to work and unemployment at record levels, businesses must act more deliberately when applying this still ever-evolving framework to address employee concerns. New legal risks arise as employees return to work. These challenges have created a perfect storm for administrative agencies to test new avenues for regulatory enforcement and plaintiffs’ attorneys to try new theories to challenge businesses’ decisions during and after the crisis. Employee claims have already begun. Scott Prange and Nate Bailey of our Seattle office will survey new legal claims and administrative challenges and provide examples of legal theories, with the goal of arriving at practical risk mitigation solutions as we head into the “new normal.”
This webinar is pending 1-hour WA-CLE and HRCI/SHRM.
