Abstract:  With many States announcing plans to relax or rescind stay-at-home orders, employers across the country are beginning to reopen their businesses and welcoming back employees. ABA providers may be considering or already transitioning back from telehealth to clinic-based and in-home care.  Employers need to be ready to confront the issues concerning a post-pandemic workplace as business guidance and legal requirements continue to change rapidly.  During this webinar sponsored by CASP, Matthew will discuss some of the legal and practical issues you should consider as you begin to plan for a return to our new “normal”.  Matthew will answer many questions including how to handle requests for paid leave, what to do if employees don’t want to come back to work, how you should prepare your workplace to minimize the risk of claims, and more.
