Checklist: Eleven Policies to Consider Before Reopening Your Business
As economies across the country begin restarting and the COVID-19 pandemic continues, employers have some important, pandemic-related revisions to consider for their employment policies and handbooks. Frankfurt Kurnit’s employment team has been reviewing the applicable federal, state, and local laws, guidelines and regulations to gather a list of specific policies employers should consider creating or revising:
1. COVID-19 screening, monitoring, and response policy
2. Social distancing, handwashing, and personal protection policy
3. Anti-discrimination/harassment & equal opportunity policy
4. Workplace accommodations policy
5. Remote work policy
6. Absence and flexible work policy
7. Sick leave and PTO policy
8. Travel policy
10. Discipline/discharge policy
11. Visitor policy
The Frankfurt Kurnit employment team will continue to monitor emerging laws, guidelines, and regulations for further recommended policies and best practices for employers. If you need help drafting or revising any of the policies discussed above, please contact Tricia Legittino, Wendy Stryker or any member of the Employment Compliance, Training & Litigation Group.
