With the unprecedented threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, employers have been challenged to determine a new normal: how to protect their employees as well as protect their business. It is crucial for businesses to prepare for the next wave of issues brought by the continuing pandemic and to understand the responsibilities employers have to their employees, clients, and the public. As businesses re-open or expand limited services across the country, it is important for employers to ensure they are operating within federal, state, and local guidelines. Employers face new challenges such as positive cases, testing employees, communicating with employees about COVID-19 risks, and mitigating risk for their business.
