GrowFL Webinar: COVID-19 and the Remote Work Force: Thinking Outside the Mask
Thursday, September 24
Working from home is here to stay. Are your job descriptions and policies updated to include your remote workforce? In this webinar, we will address the steps to follow for mitigating risks when employees are working remotely.
How do you determine which employees can work from home, and those who can’t work from home? Deciding who works from home might be setting your company up for a discrimination charge if you are not doing this right. This webinar will provide steps for you to follow to create equitable work at home arrangements.
Employee health and wellness programs are essential during COVID-19. Learn how to maintain confidential employee health information and ensure you are not violating confidential, sensitive, and personal identifying/information (PII) laws.
Finally, hear the latest COVID-19 quarantine/isolation rules, most-up-to-date CDC & Florida Department of Health recommendations, and how to use this information to create user-friendly policies and procedures.
