Employees with school-aged children are quickly learning that back to school will not be a return to normalcy. Schools are implementing modified education plans to provide for student and teacher safety in light of coronavirus concerns. Plans include mandatory and optional remote learning and hybrid models of in-person and remote learning. How will this impact your employees’ ability to perform their jobs and your company’s ability to accomplish its business objectives?
We will discuss what employers must do to comply with applicable laws and effective strategies to meet business needs and address workplace issues.
Participants Learning Objectives:
Discuss employer obligations to provide parental leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) under various school operating plans
Identify legal obligations and options if an employee needs to be at home with children but has no FFCRA leave available
Discover best practices and potential pitfalls for employees working from home due to lack of childcare or school closures
