The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the legal landscape for employers as they balance the need to comply with an array of new laws and regulations and the need to continue business operations to the fullest extent possible.  Employers are making emergent and unprecedented employment decisions to address employee health and safety issues, business and operational needs, and economic realities.  This confluence of events has created heightened risks for complaints by employees who are affected by these employment decisions.  Employee complaints—particularly when not promptly and appropriately addressed—increase the likelihood of governmental scrutiny and investigations. It is therefore critical for employers to develop a plan now for effectively handling employee complaints and bolstering compliance plans in order to minimize the risks of governmental investigations, enforcement actions and litigation.
This webinar will address current and expected future trends in employee complaints and governmental investigations stemming from COVID-19 employment issues, identify the steps employers can take now to minimize the risks associated with those complaints, and share best practice tips for handling complaints and investigations when they arise in the current environment.
