Local governments are navigating legal requirements, medical guidance, and employee concerns about keeping their workplaces and workforce safe with the spread of COVID-19, while also maintaining continuity of efficient and high-quality operations. This webinar will explore requirements and practices to ensure that workplace conditions are safe and employees are able to remain safe yet productive.
Local governments have changed their operations and workforces to address the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and related state and federally issued guidelines and directives, especially the Governor’s stay-at-home order. But, now, the outbreak is spreading, the legal requirements are expanding, work is diminishing, finances are tightening, and public scrutiny is increasing. This webinar will explore workforce changes local governments can plan for and make and the impacts of these changes, such as restructuring how work gets done, modifying work schedules and staffing, providing leave flexibility, and, potentially, reductions in the workforce.
