    Look Beyond OSHA for Return-to-Work Guidance

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has indicated it will not issue any enforceable, general return-to-work guidance. Instead, the agency is issuing targeted guidance for specific industries. This leaves employers balancing guidance from other federal agencies and oftentimes multiple states.

    EEOC Clarifies Accommodation Issues

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission clarified when an employer can exclude an employee from the workplace due to COVID-19. The revised guidance makes it clear that employers must complete an individualized “direct threat” analysis.

    DOL Releases Workshare Program Guidance

    Some employers are opting for workshare programs during the pandemic. Workshare programs allow groups of workers to collect partial unemployment benefits while working reduced hours. Employers are normally responsible for covering half the costs for these programs. However, the Department of Labor’s recent guidance says that states could “choose not to charge” employers for these programs in certain circumstances. Access the guidance - dol.gov/newsroom/releases/eta/eta20200504

Kimberly Weisul at Inc. spoke with attorney Susan Gross Sholinsky and others on best practices for complying with the PPP.

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced it will delay the collection of EEO-1 demographic data until 2021. Accordingly, the EEOC’s online filing portal for 2019 EEO-1 filings will remain closed for now, and filers will be notified of the precise collection period as soon as it is available.
