With more employees returning to work and to their physical workplaces, employers are increasingly facing employee refusals to work for COVID-19-related reasons. These refusals may trigger protections afforded by various laws, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the National Labor Relations Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. In this webinar, the speakers will discuss:

  • strategies for responding to accommodation requests from disabled and other vulnerable employees;
  • unemployment compensation issues for employees who refuse to return to work; and
  • best practices for managing the potential business disruption and related legal risks when employees refuse to return to work.
