Recent Challenges in the Workplace Due to Concerns Over the Delta Variant
Carol Goodman, co-chair of Herrick's Litigation Department and chair of the firm's Employment Practice, was a featured guest on SiriusXM's Wharton Business Daily podcast hosted by Dan Loney. During the interview, Carol talks about the ongoing considerations for employers surrounding return to office plans.
Carol discusses the recent challenges in the workplace due to concerns over the Delta variant. This includes whether companies are considering a delay in their scheduled return to work date, and whether they should implement a mandatory vaccine policy. When asked about workplace harassment given the recent news concerning Governor Cuomo, Carol urges companies not to let sexual harassment prevention training fall off the radar—particularly because harassment can occur in a remote work environment.
