JEDCO, Jefferson Chamber to host webinar on return to work policies and avoiding legal risks

Today, Governor John Bel Edwards’ Stay-at-Home mandate has been lifted. Many businesses and industries allowed in Phase 1 of the Jefferson Back to Business Plan have started operating with new guidelines and safety standards in place. As businesses open their doors and employees return to work, it is vital that employers develop policies and procedures to ensure the health and safety of their workers and their customers. These policies will not only protect employees, they will protect businesses from legal challenges. As businesses navigate the “new normal,” JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce are dedicated to bringing you informational webinars designed to inform, educate and support your business as it reopens.

Join JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, May 19th, at 1:30pm for a webinar on Returning to Work: Assessing the Risks & Actions to Mitigate Them. Adams and Reese attorneys Gregory Rouchell (Partner, Labor and Employment Team Leader) and Johnny Domiano (Partner-in-Charge,New Orleans Office) will provide a deep dive into important topics and information that will protect your business from legal and safety risks. During this webinar, they will cover:

• Assessing your industry & associated risks
• Developing a comprehensive return to work policy
• Office actions to keep your employees safe
• Best practices for reopening your business
• Legal pitfalls to avoid
