COVID-19 (the “coronavirus”) is spreading across the United States, and employers are scrambling to protect their workforce while maintaining continuity of business operations. What should companies do now—and what should they prepare for if matters get more serious?

Blank Rome Partners Brooke T. Iley and Mara B. Levin and Associate Taylor C. Morosco will present an informative and impactful webinar on March 9, 2020, from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. EDT, that will discuss potential legal risks and best practices for managing workplace concerns relating to the coronavirus and other infectious diseases.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • How does the coronavirus implicate the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and other state and federal statutes?
  • What policies should companies consider related to employee travel, remote working arrangements, leave, company gatherings, and even interpersonal activities (like handshakes)?
  • What best practices should be considered to help stem the spread of infectious diseases, including hygiene, personal contact limits, and facility maintenance?
  • What kinds of crisis communications strategies should be contemplated for this current coronavirus situation—as well as others in the future?
