Many states have already loosened or lifted restrictions and allowed non-essential businesses to reopen. Others are preparing to do so as they reach reopening goals. Yet, with newly reported COVID-19 cases still numbering in the tens of thousands daily, employers are faced with a challenging dilemma as they prepare to reopen their workplace and take the necessary steps to do so safely.
“Employers have an obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees,” said Kimball Dean Parker, CEO of SixFifty. “Fortunately, businesses can take proactive steps to help reduce the risks of COVID-19 spreading in the workplace. We built our Return-to-Work Toolset with Wilson Sonsini so that businesses of all sizes could leverage the firm’s employment law expertise to help plan and proceed with their efforts to return employees to the workplace.”
