With California’s economic reopening, companies are adjusting their financial, operational, and workforce strategies to align with our state’s new economic and workplace realities. As a follow-up to our April 2020 NELSONtalks, this webinar continues the conversation about COVID-19’s impact on California businesses. We’re bringing together three experts to discuss the economic, legal, and employment considerations that will influence business strategy and decision-making in our altered business environment.

Webinar topics will include:

    • How the California labor market data are shaping up
    • Signs that indicate the economy is on a stable path forward
    • Housing market data to watch
    • What happens economically if another full shelter-in-place order is enacted
    • How employers can effectively manage the legal risks associated with telework
    • The steps employers must follow to safely return employees to work
    • How to ensure compliance with COVID-19 laws, including the CARES Act
    • How the rise in remote work impacts the future of recruiting
    • Opportunities of tapping into a broader national and global candidate base
    • What’s ahead on the candidate landscape: greater opportunities, increased diversity

Join us for our speakers’ insightful presentations followed by a live question and answer session.
