Better Business Bureau serving Central East Texas (BBB) is hosting the next Lunch, Learn, Lead, “Clarity for Employers During Uncertain Times,” via webinar on Monday, June 8, starting at 11:30 am until 12:30 pm. The webinar will aim to provide clarity to employers in this unprecedented and uncertain time.
“Knowing how to manage appropriately and respond to the ever-changing impact of the Covid-19 crisis has been a challenge for all business leaders,” Mechele Agbayani Mills, President, and CEO of BBB Serving Central East Texas said. “Our hope is that this webinar will provide greater certainty for employers during these uncertain times.”
Presenting is Eric Kolder. An attorney at Ramey & Flock, in Tyler, Kolder specializes in employment law & litigation, probate & trust litigation, and estate planning. He will discuss specific Covid-19 changes which impact business owners and employers, including:
- Businesses’ potential COVID-related liability to visitors, customers, and employees
- OSHA’s COVID-related requirements and potential employer liability
- How to handle employee refusals to work due to COVID-related fear, and
- Potential pitfalls in dealing with employee furloughing
“What most often causes employers the most trouble are not actions they take willfully with full knowledge, but, instead, subtle details they don’t know they don’t know,” Kolder said.
