More and more businesses are looking to bring back their employees to the office.  As States move toward easing the shutdown restrictions, the rules seem to change on a daily basis.  As I talk with business clients, the same three questions keep coming up:

  1. Do I need a plan?
  2. What rules do I follow (local, state, federal)?
  3. What is my liability?

Each answer to the question above certainly brings forth more questions.  However, I can tell you that there is not a standard plan to follow.  If anything, you will probably hear the following, which every law school student learns on day one in law school:  “It Depends”

So, to make things a little easier, I have pulled together some helpful resources that can help you navigate the “return to work” conundrum.

Ultimately, you will put together a “return to work/office” plan that makes the most sense for your business, employees and clients.  I highly recommend that you lean on your professional advisors, senior leaders, industry trade organizations and even your competition to come up with the best process.
