From Our Partners at NYCON
The impact of COVID-19 on work in America has been immeasurable, Beyond facemasks and hand sanitizer, tens of millions of American workers now regularly “go to work” without physically going to work at all. Even while working at a traditional worksite, employees are now afforded far greater say in assuring proper workplace safety standards. This session will examine and explore related considerations as they pertain to your (hopefully, post-) pandemic workplace, with a focus on related policy review and development considerations.
