We are in unprecedented times between COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement.  Some rules are more strict, while others are relaxed.  As we navigate this brave new world, we need to make sure that the precautions we are taking are in line with the law, our legal obligations, and our responsibility to provide a discrimination-free workplace, whether the workplace is virtual or physical. 

Our speaker will show us what are the issues, what’s at stake, and how to address the employer’s needs with diversity and inclusion to run a successful business in a changing world of increasing healthcare infections, financial volatility, employee and customer anxiety, and legal compliance.

Participants will learn how recent events may:

  • Increase harassment and discrimination against protected groups
  • Impact the process for reasonable accommodation requests
  • Provide some exceptions to standard procedures and/legal obligations
