About this webinar
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 explores 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.
