Decisions around remote and in-office working arrangements are one of the many areas of potential liability in the COVID-19 era. Lawyers from Mayer Brown presented on this and other areas of potential liability in a recent webinar for a major auto manufacturer, highlighting important issues that employers should address in the months ahead.
Partners Liz Stern, who leads the firm’s Global Mobility & Migration practice, Andy Rosenman and Ruth Zadikany, co-leaders of our Employment Litigation & Counseling practice, discussed 10 issues for employers to focus on in the next 100 days: (1) understand evolving governmental directives; (2) implement safety measures; (3) travel; (4) consider testing and other health screenings; (5) navigate new day-to-day personnel and privacy issues; (6) changes in immigration regulation; (7) discrimination and retaliations issues; (8) wage and hour considerations; (9) immigration compliance and enforcement; and (10) OSHA and workers’ compensation considerations.
