2020 Virtual Education Forum Webinar: The Great Return – Tips & Tricks to Develop Your RTW Plan

DMECVirtual Education Forum, Webinars

Tuesday, Sept. 15

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

As the work environment continues to evolve during the COVID-19 pandemic, employers are struggling to develop safe return-to-work strategies, especially when the great return will likely be phased out across many months. From signage and facility changes, to the ever-changing federal and state guidelines, employers should develop strategies that not only protect their workforce, but also support local and federal reopening efforts.

Join us as we learn how our colleagues in varying industries are helping their employees safely return to work in this new environment. What steps have they taken? What have they learned? What has surprised them? Additionally, what must employers consider from the ADA and the FMLA perspectives? You will walk away with practical insight and helpful tips as you work to get your employees back to work safely.
