Refusals to Return to Work: Childcare, Vulnerable Populations, and Other Employee Challenges

Human Resources

As small and mid-sized businesses begin to return to work, managing onsite employee health and safety is a top concern*, according to a recent Paychex survey.  Despite this focus, however, there will still be employees who may not be able to (or who refuse to) return to the workplace.

Watch this on-demand webinar with Cepideh Roufougar, Principal at the national labor and employment law firm of Jackson Lewis P.C., as we discuss the many issues surrounding these “refusal to return” situations, including options for helping employees overcome the various challenges they may be facing; accommodating those who may be at higher risk to enable them to return; applicable leave laws and provisions of the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA); best practices for employers to navigate the relevant laws and regulations; and suggestions for helping employees manage their childcare issues.

*Paychex conducted four separate online surveys of 300 principals of U.S.-based businesses with 2 to 500 employees. Wave 1 was fielded April 17-20; Wave 2, April 24-27; Wave 3, May 1-4, Wave 4, May 15-17. Each survey has a +/-5.66% margin of error.
