    HR Works 120: COVID-19 Testing Realities, Limitations, and Plans for Employers

    This episode strives to answer one important question: can COVID-19 testing play an effective role in bringing workers back to the workplace? New information and data about the disease are available every day and with it comes changes in best practices for keeping everyone safe. Meanwhile, many employers are bringing workers back to the workplace and they need to understand the most current testing methods and strategies to keep everyone safe.

    Our guest is at the forefront of putting together testing strategies and packages for employers as they navigate this challenging time. Dr. Sree Chaguturu is the Chief Medical Officer for CVS Caremark (https://www.caremark.com). His organization is striving to put together strategies and testing capabilities for employers.

    In this episode, we'll explore what kinds of testing is now and will be available in the future. We'll look at how each can be used most effectively, and where the limitations are. We'll also look at the role of vaccines when they come around, and what things will look like over the next year or two.

    HR Works COVID-19 Update: When the Pandemic Creates Wage and Hour Violations

    HR Works COVID-19 Update: When the Pandemic Creates Wage and Hour Violations

    Imagine this: your employees have been working with a wage cut for the last few months. But there is good news! Your business has recovered enough for you to restore their pay. Not only that, but you also want to make them whole, so you pay everyone a bonus on top of restoring their pay. Did you know that you may have just committed at least three wage and hour violations?

    Wage and hour laws have always been complex, and the pandemic has added new layers of complexity. Fortunately, we are lucky to have Maggie Spell, Partner at the New Orleans location of Jones Walker (https://www.joneswalker.com/offices/new-orleans.html) with us. In this episode, she helps us unpack some of the most common pandemic-induced wage and hour violations.

    Maggie focuses her practice on cases brought under federal, state, and local employment laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. She regularly offers wage and hour compliance advice and has represented employers in numerous Fair Labor Standards Act collective actions and state-law wage and hour class actions.

    Last week we began to explore employer liability when it comes to COVID-19-related issues. Today we are going to dive in a little deeper, and answer some very important questions like can you force employees to take a COVID-19 test? What about antibody tests? Can you measure their temperatures? Can you make them wear a mask? What happens if they don’t comply; can you fire them?

    Here to talk about these and other legal issues is employment lawyer and member of Clark Hill (https://www.clarkhill.com) in Collin County Texas, Kim Moore.

    HR Works 119: Supporting Single Mothers of Color

    HR Works 119: Supporting Single Mothers of Color

    While the pandemic has influenced every worker in the united states, it has not done so evenly. Already there are serious differences between essential workers who stay on the front lines and those who were lucky enough to work from home. In short, the country is in total chaos. Some states are closing down for the first time, some are opening back up, others are ignoring their very serious coronavirus issues.

    Perhaps most disturbingly, many organizations and political figures have been moving towards an “economy matters more than lives” attitude that will put serious burdens on the most vulnerable. According to experts I’ve spoken with and research I’ve read, among the most vulnerable are women of color, particularly single mothers of color.

    On top of all of the coronavirus-related concerns have also been the rising racial tensions in this country that add another whole layer of uncertainty and unrest to this already unsustainable situation.

    Here to help us understand the situation, and how HR can help, is Asha Tarry. She’s is an author, award-winning community mental health advocate, psychotherapist, and certified life coach.

    She is also the founder of Behavioral Health Consulting Services LMSW, PLLC (https://www.bhcsct.org) which provides consulting, counseling, and coaching to creatives and small business owners in the wellness and entertainment industries and educational sector. As a mindfulness practitioner, she has consulted with initiatives on maternal health, global workplace retention, and been a writer and speaker for several outlets focused on mental health.

    HR Works COVID-19 Update: Will Due Diligence Help Employers Win COVID-Related Lawsuits?

    HR Works COVID-19 Update: Will Due Diligence Help Employers Win COVID-Related Lawsuits?

    As the landscape of work changes, so will the landscape of employment law. Across our nation, some states are closing down while others are opening up. That creates a lot of variability in how employers approach keeping everyone safe and the return to work. What are the liabilities? How can they keep up when best practices change constantly? Will due diligence help when, retroactively, employers realize they got something wrong.

    Here to talk about these and other legal issues is employment lawyer and member of Clark Hill (https://www.clarkhill.com) in Collin County Texas, Kim Moore.
