ADA, FMLA, FFRCA, GINA, and OSHA: The Federal Alphabet Soup in the Second Half of 2020

Live Webinar | CEU Approved

  • 90 minutes

Possibly, you have already performed your annual HR compliance audit and updated your company's employee handbook with the necessary changes.  Perhaps pre-pandemic, you were confident your employee policies and procedures were up to date, and addressed the alphabet soup of federal, state, and local statutory and regulatory requirements. Then along came COVID-19, and with it, double serving of new laws and regulations. Now is the moment in time to conduct a mini HR compliance self-audit to bring your policies and procedures back into compliance.

Join this session by expert speaker Dr. Jim Castagnera, attorney at law, as he guides you through a quick compliance audit. He’ll review with you the new statutes, regulations and guidelines, highlighting necessary changes to your policies and procedures occasioned by the pandemic.

Session Highlights:

  • The federal and state statutes regulations to cover in your quickly audit. These will include the traditional federal alphabet soup: ADA, FLSA, FMLA, GINA, HIPAA, NLRA, OSHA, and Title VII, as well as the new kids on the block, i.e. the FCCRA, the CARES Act, and subsequent COVID-19 legislation.

  • Noteworthy state and local legislation, such as COVID-19 inspired amendments to New Jersey’s paid-sick-leave law and Los Angeles’s ordinance topping off FCCRA benefits.

  • The major governmental guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control, the Department of Labor, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

  • Best practices for testing employees, reconfiguring work spaces, and providing PPE.

  • New disciplinary rules regarding workplace hygiene, social distancing, reporting symptoms.

  • Sample policy language and checklists.

  • Policies and planning for the next pandemic.

  • Litigation-prevention strategies.

Why You Should Attend:

The post-pandemic compliance paradigm will be very different from the regulatory environment of only a few short months ago.
