May 14: Webcast - Know How to Protect Your Workers When Nature Gets Nasty

When the weather turns frightening, business owners usually think about protecting the business—the building, the inventory, the revenue stream. But what about that makes it all hum—the people? When the next Superstorm Sandy, earthquake, or tornado strikes, will you be ready? Advance preparation will allow you to have a sound emergency plan.
Join us for a 90-minute webinar in which our panelists will provide tips and best practices for developing policies and plans for getting your employees through a weather event. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions. Topics will include:
  • Keeping workers safe during inclement weather
  • Protecting your business when injuries occur
  • Paying employees during weather-related closings
  • How weather-related closings impact absence policies, PTO, and FMLA eligibility
  • How to handle workers who cannot report to work, get stranded at work, refuse to work, or are laid off because of inclement weather.
Our weather-veteran panelists practice on both sides of the table, so you’ll receive a multi-dimensional perspective on mastering weather-related employment policies.
