Legal Tips for Employers: Workplace Strategies for Navigating COVID 19 in 2021 and Beyond

  • 13 Oct 2021
  • 12:00 PM
  • Online: Attend From Your Home or Office Computer



If you own a business or manage employees then you are likely struggling with the questions that we are all hearing about these days:

  • Is it legal to require employees to be tested or vaccinated?
  • Should there be a mask mandate in the office?
  • Do employees get paid for COVID leave for themselves or family members?
  • I have only a few employees, do the sick leave laws apply?
  • All of my employees want to work remotely, how do I respond?
  • Will OSHA begin to visit or monitor our workplace?
  • Will employers receive a tax credit for providing COVID leave?
  • Are we required to enforce guidelines or mandates or both?

These issues are causing extra stress in an already difficult time and that is why I've invited Kim Kisner to be a guest speaker for Pittsburgh Professional Women in October. 

Because of the importance of the topic, this webcast is open to all professionals in Western PA, regardless of membership status. 

Please join us at 12noon on Wednesday, October 13th and hear the answers to these questions from attorney Kim Kisner. 

If you have a question for Kim, please submit that when you register.
