Join us for our September CBSHRM Virtual Chapter Meeting - OSHA Rules Applying to COVID-19:What Businesses Need to Know presented by Christine Zinter an associate with The Cicotte Law Firm.

With employees heading back to work while COVID-19 shows little sign of abating, employers need to be aware of OSHA safety regulations and OSHA’s reliance on CDC safety guidelines – which in turn keep changing as we learn more about the virus and how its transmitted. Being able to demonstrate compliance with safety guidelines not only protects employers from a liability standpoint, but also helps assure anxious employees who fear coming back to work. This seminar will touch on CDC and OSHA updated guidance and any other safety-related regulations that are sure to pop up in the next six weeks as Congress releases its next COVID-19 relief package.
