COVID-19 Health & Safety Information

DMEC is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all participants at the 2022 DMEC FMLA/ADA Employer Compliance Conference. Our decisions and preventive measures are guided by the requirements and recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and federal, state, and local health authorities.

The responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among DMEC, the event venue, and conference attendees. Towards this end, all attendees are expected to comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities in Los Angeles, CA, and are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions DMEC has implemented to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

In order to attend the 2022 DMEC FMLA/ADA Employer Compliance Conference:
  • Attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after they have received a complete dose(s) of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-authorized or -approved COVID-19 vaccination (both initially and as recommended by the CDC for subsequent COVID-19 booster shots).
  • Attendees must provide proof of vaccination prior to arriving onsite at the conference. Vaccination information must be uploaded to our third-party health screening company, CrowdPass, no later than Mar. 14, 2022.
  • Attendees must adhere to the policies and requirements outlined in the DMEC COVID-19 Duty of Care Agreement. At the time of registration, all attendees will be required to agree that they have read and fully understand DMEC’s COVID-19 Duty of Care Agreement, and freely and knowingly assume the risk, waive their rights concerning liability, and agree to adhere to all policies outlined.

We will be making decisions on additional precautionary measures — such as mask-wearing and social distancing — closer to the date of the event and in accordance with the latest CDC guidance, local requirements, and hotel policies.

Individuals should not attend the conference if they:
  • are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior, have experienced signs and symptoms of COVID-19;
  • believe that they have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19; or
