Labor and Employment Law Update as we start 2021

There were a lot of changes to labor and employment law in 2020, and not all of it was related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This presentation will discuss common COVID-19 employment law issues as well as other legal updates that occurred in 2020.  Topics that will be covered include all things COVID-19, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and CDC guidance, EEOC guidance, vaccine guidance, teleworking, federal emergency relief laws enacted, and other issues.  Non-COVID-19 topics will include a Supreme Court update, legal trends in 2020, and updates regarding other regulatory guidance.
