With the COVID-19 coronavirus now present in all 50 states and many communities mandating social isolation, it critical that businesses look to the future and adjust their continuity plans to address a rapidly changing situation.

The COVID-19 pandemic could have a profound impact on how you do business in the future. Now is the time to be proactive rather taking a “wait and see approach.

  • Implement strategies to maintain engagement of a remote work force
  • Evaluate your employment law obligations for remote employees and those who either become sick or have to take care of sick relatives
  • Identify potential future changes, challenges, and opportunities that could affect your company and your workforce

Emergency Management Consultant
Lucien G. Canton, CEM (LLC)

Beecher served as an in-house counsel in major corporations for more than 20 years where she advised in-house clients on labor and employment law issues including, among other matters, OFCCP “Glass Ceiling” audits, EEOC class age investigations, implementation of the ADA, and FLSA Wage and Hour audits, and developed a self-audit tool for McDonnell Douglas Corporation and The Boeing Company. Ms. Beecher also worked as in-house counsel for E. I. duPont de Nemours & Co., Consolidation Coal Company and Arch Coal Company.

In 2011 Beecher was selected by the National Research Council of the National Academies to participate in the Expert Study on Measuring and Collecting Pay Information from U.S. Employers by Gender, Race, and National Origin. Requested by the EEOC, the report by the panel was issued in 2012.

Beecher has been a regular speaker at the ILG National Conference since 2004 and she moderated the opening panel for the 2015 conference in New York City.

When Lucien Canton talked his way into the San Francisco emergency operations center to offer his services during the Loma Prieta earthquake he never expected that it would spark a career change that would involve him in Federal disaster planning at the national level and see him appointed by Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr in 1996 as the Director of Emergency Services for San Francisco.

He has served in over seventeen presidentially declared disasters and on an elite national response team and, over the years, has emerged as a major thought leader in emergency management, advocating the use of management concepts to professionalize a field that is often mischaracterized as a technical discipline. A frequent speaker at national conferences and guest lecturer at universities both in the United States and abroad, Canton’s book, Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, is used as a textbook for both graduate and undergraduate courses. As a consultant, Canton specializes in helping managers lead better in crisis by understanding the human factors often overlooked in crisis planning.
