Show Topic:

There is a multitude of factors to consider as employers begin (or continue) to return employees to the physical workplace.

 
As companies balance operational needs with employee satisfaction, they will simultaneously be juggling health and safety precautions related to the pandemic and the vaccination status of their team members. Woven into all of this is the fact that in most parts of the country, the labor market has put employees in a strong bargaining position, and the work-from-home arrangement has been sufficing for many over the course of the last year.

 
In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez as she discusses these issues and the legal implications of the employer’s decisions with Attorney Emily Waddell of Verrill’s Labor and Employment Practice Group.
