The “New” Workplace: Changes and Challenges in Employment Law

As we head into 2021, employers and employees are reflecting on one of the most tumultuous years they have ever faced. From COVID-19 to dramatic shifts in social and cultural paradigms, workplaces and employment law are forever altered. This new, 90 minute webinar will explore how the unique events of 2020 have changed our ideas and understanding about the workplace and the employer/employee relationship, and will preview additional issues and challenges employers and employees should expect in 2021. Experienced employment law lawyer Ryan Watkins will focus on three developing areas:

Legal and practical issues arising from COVID-19
Challenges of the remote workplace
Changing approaches to diversity, harassment and discrimination

Ryan will address issues of interest to practitioners who represent both employers and employees, including workplace safety, employment leaves, availability of a COVID-19 vaccine, hours of work, accommodation, confidentiality, privacy, and discrimination and harassment law and trends. Particular attention will be paid to questions relating to mandatory vaccination requirements. Don’t miss this opportunity to get the information you need to provide practical guidance to your clients about today’s new and rapidly changing workplace landscape.
