Part 2: HR & Employee Safety
Wednesday, July 29th
1:00pm to 2:30pm
What is Business Continuity planning, why is it important and how do businesses get started with a plan? When COVID-19 hit, businesses were forced to make many quick and difficult decisions about their employees in a rapidly changing and uncertain environment.
In this presentation, we will look at what has changed since the early days of the pandemic (FFCRA, unemployment, etc) and what has not changed (ADA, FMLA, FEPA, etc.) and discuss strategies to incorporate practical and legally-sound employment policies into your business continuity plan. We'll use the example of COVID and planning now for the potential Fall surge, but also touch on other situations that business should think about for overall crisis management.
Presenters: Shannon Prescott, The Richards Group; Heather Rider Hammond, Gravel & Shea; Cassandra LaRae-Perez, Gravel & Shea
