Coronavirus Our Response On Blue Background

Briefly Stated 1.15.21

Wednesday, January 27 at 4:00 PM
While 2020 has come to an end, COVID-19 related employment issues, unfortunately, have not. In fact, in the new year, employers will be faced with a whole new host of issues, including:
• The COVID-19 vaccine is coming, but can employers require employees to be vaccinated when it is available? What can arts organizations require of patrons, volunteers, independent contractors, and visitors to keep their spaces safe?
• Is remote work here to stay, and how can arts organizations navigate the legal challenges of employees working from home?
• With expiration of the mandatory leave provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act on December 31, what should employers do when employees need time off for COVID-19 related reasons?
Please join Greensfelder Employment & Labor attorneys Lauren Daming and Katie Fechte for an informative Missouri ArtSafe webinar, presented in collaboration with VLAA. Register here.

Bi-state area residents can pre-register to get the vaccine and then be notified when it’s their turn to receive it:
St. Louis City
St. Louis County
St. Charles County
Madison County
St. Clair County
