Davis & Gilbert Counsel 2U®: Labor & Employment Seminar
Remote Employees, COVID Vaccines and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Recent Legal Developments and Best Practices

February 3, 2021

The past year has significantly altered the workplace and left many employers scrambling to address major legal and cultural changes during an uncertain time. While the COVID-19 pandemic required many employers to convert to virtual workplaces, with employees spread out across the country, the remote work environment continues to present a host of compliance and legal issues, including wage and hour considerations, disability accommodations, and how to address complaints and concerns that arise from this new remote work environment. In addition, the political climate led employers to hone in on furthering diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

The webinar will focus on:

  • Best practices and compliance considerations for a remote workforce, including expense reimbursement, wage and hour requirements, disability accommodations, complying with legal obligations in new jurisdictions and privacy concerns
  • Preventing digital harassment and conducting internal investigations in the virtual workplace
  • Considering the implications of the COVID-19 vaccination and what policies to implement when transitioning back to the office
  • Recent trends in diversity, equity and inclusion in hiring and retention, and how to further those goals while mitigating against legal risk
  • Recent developments and key considerations for benefit plans in 2021 and beyond, including changes in the stimulus package passed in December 2020


Our L&E Quick Takes will address trending issues like:

  • Paid sick and family leave updates
  • Pay equity and pay-data reporting
  • Restrictive covenants updates


Benefits & Compensation Round Up

  • Increased flexibility for cafeteria plans as a result of the pandemic and related plan amendments
  • HIPAA considerations for COVID-19
