Event Description

Mask Mandates & Safety in the Workplace – What You Need to Know as We Reopen

Amy Robinson, Partner, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP
Ivan Resendiz-Gutierrez, Appellate and Litigation Attorney, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP

As Oregon continues to reopen and vaccination numbers increase, requirements around masking also continue to evolve. What can your organization expect legally as we welcome employees back to shared office space and facilities? Join Miller Nash Graham & Dunn attorneys Amy Robinson and Iván Resendiz Gutierrez as they lead a practical discussion of this fast-moving issue and highlight some key considerations for employers as they contemplate whether and how to address masking and vaccination in their return-to-work planning, including:

  • Balancing occupational safety and health obligations with employee privacy protections
  • Complying with employment discrimination laws and disability accommodations requirements
  • Labor-related limitations
  • Wage and hour issues
  • Workers compensation/insurance coverage
  • State and local laws, and
  • Reputational and employee-relations concerns

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
