Webinar Recording: The Future of the Workplace in the Post COVID-19 Era

Jennifer NelsonResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


We have passed the one year anniversary since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has changed the workplace in so many ways. As the country moves toward the elusive goal of “herd immunity” and many are vaccinated, employers are well-advised to do a comprehensive review of whether they are properly in compliance with current COVID-19 workplace requirements, and to plan for the future of work in a post-COVID-19 era. From possible emergence of permanent leave allocations (paid or unpaid) related to public health emergencies or natural disasters, safety-related anti-retaliation laws, and telework offerings (either voluntarily or as a legally mandated accommodation), the workplace as we knew it has forever shifted.

In this webinar, Sun Life experts provided updates on COVID-19-related statutory and agency requirements at the federal, state, and local level that have an impact on employers. We also explored the types of short-term workplace changes adopted in response to COVID-19 that may have lasting impact on the workplace and on employers’ compliance obligations.
