2021 HR Trends - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Program Length: 1.5 hours

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: This webinar will answer all of your pressing HR questions for 2021 and help you start off the new year in the right direction!

The main “trend” for 2021 will continue to be how employers are dealing with the pandemic, which includes:

  • Work at home as an ADA accommodation and other ADA accommodation developments.
  • ADA coverage of mental health conditions.
  • Leave issues under the ADA, FMLA and extended FFCRA (if that occurs)
  • Medical inquiries/testing of employees for COVID-19; and
  • Can you legally require vaccinations of your employees?

Other issues include onboarding, physical workspace, timekeeping, wellness, tax withholding from various locations, security, hours of work, morale, managing remote workers, productivity, cybersafety, etc.

Anxiety, depression, and other mental illness as employees deal with the prolonged uncertainty and, likely, other bad effects (spouse’s job loss, illness, isolation, etc)

Working while kids are homeschooling or dealing with a hybrid school model. What do you legally have to do to accommodate them and what are best practices?

The other big trend for 2021 is likely to be how a Biden Presidency will change the HR landscape—possible undoing of Trump administration rules and regulations, going back to Obama-era policies; changing guidance and possibly regulations related to COVID (don’t forget COVID!); expanding and fine-tuning the Affordable Care Act; return to the regulatory climate of the Obama-Biden administration with possibilities including looking to raise the minimum wage, raise the salary threshold for overtime, making it easier for unions to organize, rescinding Trump administration Executive Orders on immigration and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Plan for 2021
  • Understand what new requirements are coming in 2021
  • Prepare for a change from federal agencies
  • Have the right tools to deal with COVID-19 in the workplace both in office and remote
