State of the Pandemic: Discussion of Current Issues

  • 11 Aug 2020
  • 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM
  • FVTC D.J. Bordini Center, 5 N Systems Dr, Appleton, WI 54914




Whether we are back to normal or navigating a “new normal,” there will certainly be a number of employment related concerns to discuss. The presentation will focus on issues employers have faced since returning to work after Safer at Home and the outlook for fall. The topics for discussion will be finalized closer to August in order to address the most current issues facing employers. 

  • Provide update on new or pending legislation.
  • Address operational and policy changes since Safer at Home including how to undo temporary policy changes without creating liability.
  • Redefining service and performance expectations – attendance, performance evaluation, employee work and interface obligations, lingering effect/permanency of the COVID-19 legal obligations of employers
  • Establishing core competencies in the business and how to define worker expectations and success
