Employment Law Institute (2021)

2020 was a year of change, challenges, and hard conversations that has had an impact on all areas of society but perhaps none more than the workplace. This 2021 Employment Law Institute will not only reflect on the last year but give practical and timely advice on how to manage and implement the continuing changes required by both employers and employees. Topics will include: expected changes from the Biden administration, wage and hour update, leave of absence issues, remote investigations, and a race and ethics panel discussion.

Biden Administration Update – What Can We Expect?

COVID-19 Update
The COVID-19 vaccine is becoming more widely available. Many employers are considering whether they can or should require employees to be vaccinated. This presentation will explore the legal and practical considerations for employers who are thinking about whether to require employees to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine and/or for those employers who want to know their options. This presentation will also touch on considerations for employers as employees are vaccinated and transition back to the workplace.

Leave of Absence Issues 
The application of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to employee leaves of absence was a challenge for employees and employers alike even before the pandemic. This program will address where we are with respect to leave one year later and what are the implications going forward as employees start returning to physical workplaces … or not.

How to Do Remote Employment Related Investigations
(0.75 General Professional Responsibility Credits)
The pandemic has created unique challenges for companies that are conducting internal investigations or find themselves the subject of an investigation.  Witness interviews, documents and data collection, and interactions have all been affected.  Despite these disruptions, attorneys conducting remote investigations can employ practical solutions in response to COVID-19.  This program will also address privilege and ethical issues attorneys should consider when it comes to investigations.
Kathryn M. Hartrick, Hartrick Employment Law, Ltd., Chicago 

Race and Ethics Panel
(1.25 D&I Professional Responsibility Credits)
Employers must remain purposeful in creating a sense of community, belonging, and engagement in the workplace.
