Monday, September 28th, 2020: Your Future With and After COVID-19: What To Do Now and What To Expect – Presented by Kristin Nealey Meier. Kristin will discuss the potential issues that will arise as a result of the radical changes that occurred due to the pandemic. She will provide some issues you should expect and be prepared for, including OSHA complaints, remote working, layoffs, rehiring, and more.
Tuesday, September 29th, 2020: Workplace Accommodation and the Interactive Process through the Lens of COVID – Presented by Hana Kern. Hana will discuss when and how an employer must provide workplace accommodation.  She will review the requirements of, and commonly-asked questions about, the interactive process, and she will address how COVID-related issues affect the employer’s obligations.
Wednesday, September 30th, 2020: Employee Termination Best Practices (During COVID and Beyond) – Presented by Britenae Pierce. Britenae will give employers the legal information and practical tools they need to know about terminating employees, with a special emphasis on terminations during COVID-19. From preparing for terminations, handling the termination itself, and post-termination considerations, this presentation will prepare employers to handle a wide variety of circumstances when facing employee terminations, and to handle them with confidence.
Thursday, October 1, 2020: Top Three New Employment Laws You Missed During the Pandemic – Presented by Shannon Lawless. Washington has experienced three major employment law developments in 2020 unrelated to COVID: (1) our new Paid Family and Medical Leave Act became fully effective, (2) a new law severely restricts non-competition agreements, and (3) the salary basis for the “white collar” (executive, administrative, and professional) exemptions increased significantly at the federal and state levels. Missed these changes due to the pandemic? We’ll catch you up.
Friday, October 2, 2020: Panel Presentation: Employment Law Updates & FAQs – Presented by Susan Fox, Hana Kern, Shannon Lawless, Kristin Nealey Meier, and Britenae Pierce. On Friday, all the speakers will come together to answer frequently asked questions and provide employment law case updates.

Each webinar is pending 0.5 SHRM/HRCI/CLE credits.
