    Reducing Workers' Compensation and OSHA Liability during COVID-19 and Beyond

    Tuesday, October 27, 2020
    12:00-1:00 p.m. (EST)

    For most businesses, the switch to a remote workplace was a new concept when the pandemic started. Many thought they would return to the office in a week or two, but of course, that wasn't the case. We find our teams working from home in corners, closets and other "temporary" arrangements as we all navigate this new normal together. However, what happens if your remote working employee gets hurt at home, contracts COVID-19 or files an OSHA complaint?

    Bricker attorneys Sue Roudebush and Anthony Lelli will answer those questions, and others, to help your business reduce workers' compensation and OSHA liability during COVID-19 and beyond.
