About this webinar
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 explores requirements and practices to ensure:
- Workplace conditions are safe for workers through physical distancing, keeping facilities sanitary and providing or encouraging personal protective equipment; and
- Employees are safe yet still productive through appropriately handling concerns about employees’ own medical conditions and their potential exposure to COVID-19 and the corresponding complexity of administering related leaves of absence.
