HR Trending Topics Complimentary Webinar

The start of the new year has been quite eventful. Many employers across the country are updating their policies to include new Paid Family Medical Leave provisions, and they're now debating other policies such as mandated vaccinations and Anti-Rioting. Before making any changes to your policies, it's important to understand employee rights and wellness program regulations. We'll discuss current hot topics including:

  • Can employers mandate the COVID-19 vaccine?
  • If employers choose to incentivize employees to get the vaccine, what are the limitations?
  • Must the cost of the vaccine be covered by the employer?
  • Can an employer terminate an employee who participates in a riot during their personal time?

Join TPS Group HR Services and our guest speaker Stuart Katz, Attorney at Cohen and Wolf, for our first HR Roundtable of 2021 where we will review and take questions on important issues regarding employer mandated vaccination, wellness programs and riot policies.
