As stay-at-home orders begin to abate and we gradually open for business, more and more employers and employees are returning to the workplace. In this new Coronavirus-impacted reality, we face a complex landscape of logistical, legal, psychological, and emotional challenges. New and important concerns exist around ensuring employees’ health and wellness—both physical and mental—in an environment marked by increased risk and heightened anxiety. What are the best practices with regard to health and safety checks, COVID-19 testing protocols, and managing requests by individuals who are resistant, scared or require special accommodations? Are workplace disputes in the current climate different, and how effective are virtual platforms at reaching successful settlement?

Join our panel of psychological and legal experts and experienced mediators as we delve into a discussion of return to the workplace issues, including:

  • The effect the coronavirus is having on employees: a psychiatrist’s view
  • Key legal and practical issues arising from our return to the workplace
  • How is the coronavirus and its effects impacting the resolution of disputes?
