DOL online dialogue

The US Dept of Labor is hosting a national online dialogue to solicit ideas about challenges as businesses reopen and how to help workplaces reopen safely. They want to hear from both employers and workers about:

  • reopening businesses
  • commuting safely
  • working safely
  • accommodating members of vulnerable populations
  • supporting America’s families
  • reducing regulatory burdens

You can participate, comment, and also vote on others’ ideas through May 7th.

> Submit your ideas, comments, and votes
> ‘Opening America’s Workplaces Again’ Web Resources

If you have any questions regarding your business’s obligations during this challenging time, please reach out to Jessica Farrelly in the firm’s Employment Law Group.
