The New York Health and Essential Rights (HERO) Act was created to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases in the workplace. The HERO Act requires employers to implement an airborne infectious disease exposure prevention plan, and also requires employers to allow the formation of a joint labor-management workplace safety committee. Although the Act is well intentioned, it creates some serious compliance headaches for employers in the Empire State. That is especially true given recent guidance issued by the New York State Department of Labor. Join us for this interactive webinar where we explore the Act’s place among other recent New York employment legislation, the Act’s disease exposure prevention rules, and the Act’s joint labor-management workplace safety rules. After this webinar, in-house counsel and HR professionals will have a clear roadmap on how to comply with the Act.
