    The target audience for this seminar is HR professionals and any business owners.  This ninety-minute presentation is intended to answer common questions posed by Minnesota employers, with emphasis on questions submitted by North Star SHRM members.  The session will include multiple opportunities for question-and-answer.

    The entire session will be conducted by Zoom.  PowerPoint slides be shared with participants and will be made available afterward for download.

    Participants will receive information to help them provide knowledgeable input into decisions involving several areas, including the following objectives are:

    • What should an employer do to minimize liability relating to COVID-19
    • What can an employer ask applicants and employees that would help prevent work-place incidents of COVID-19 while avoiding disability-related discrimination
    • How can an employer manage the fears and stress prevalent among employees returning to work
    • How can an employer limit its liability from guests and other non-employees arising from COVID-19
