As businesses return to the workplace and resume or expand operations, they face a variety of COVID-19-related employment challenges. How they respond to those challenges will substantially impact their exposure to legal claims from employees and others.

Early trends are already emerging that highlight a variety of legal theories and claims arising from employers’ efforts to return employees to work. Even while these theories play out in courts, and while government guidance and notions of “best practices” continue to change and evolve, there are steps employers can take now to help reduce their potential exposure to COVID-19 related employment claims.

Join Jessica Brown and Karl Nelson for this complimentary 60-minute session to explore:

  • Whether employers face liability for terminating employees who fail or refuse to follow COVID-19 protocols
  • Evolving theories of liability for alleged exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace
  • Employer strategies for mitigating workplace COVID-19 claims, including application of workers’ compensation remedies and whether waivers may play an effective role
  • Appropriate use of health screening measures consistent with state and federal guidance

Presenters: Jessica Brown, and Karl Nelson, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP
