    This month’s GWHRA meeting will again be delivered virtually as the Workforce Development Center remains closed. We continue our conversation on Covid-19 in the Workplace and have aa agenda full of information relevant to small and large organizations. Expect to hear an update on the Payment Protection Program and the second round of SBA loan availability. Additionally, we are going to spend some time discussing how we safely bring employees back to work with empathy while representing the best interests of the company. Lastly, we’ll dive in to some recruiting trends, specifically around compensation, that have emerged over the last 6 weeks. To keep things lively, this month we are going to rotate speakers and topics throughout the hour while answering your Q&A.


    What if we end a furlough but employees don’t return due to high unemployment compensation? What are some recommended precautions an employer can take to reduce the risk of litigation down the road? Can I require documentation from an employees family member if it’s a Covid related absence?  We’ll answer these and more!
