COVID-19 & Return-to-Work Policy Generator

Providing extensive employer policies for maintaining a vital workforce and worksites during COVID-19.

Throughout all stages of COVID-19, what all employers share is the need for clear, comprehensive policies to minimize health and liability risks from the coronavirus. Having a plan is the only way to smoothly conduct operations without increasing the spread of COVID-19 in your workplace.

Creating a COVID-19 & return to work policy for your business to answer the important questions:

  • How will you screen employees before work? 
  • How will you reconfigure worksites and offices? 
  • How will you comply with evolving state and federal guidance?
  • What should you do when someone is sick or tests positive?

Many companies have a patchwork of COVID-19 and return-to-work policies; some have none at all. A plan provides clear direction and reassures your employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders that you have a thoughtful, organized effort to make their health and safety a top priority. Having and following a solid plan also reduces liability risk as it provides strong evidence of your diligent efforts to protect people. 

But, time is short and budgets are tight. The many pages and sources of federal and state guidance can be overwhelming. Why reinvent the wheel? 

Husch Blackwell’s COVID-19 & Return-to-Work Policy Generator is an easy-to-use, affordable tool that enables businesses of all sizes to create return-to-work plans, customized to their operations without starting from scratch. Built-in are Husch Blackwell’s knowledge in health, safety and employment issues, as well as hours of experience helping clients manage safely throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

"I started making a list of things we needed to consider before re-opening due to COVID-19. Then I received the email from Husch Blackwell about a "policy generator." Thank you for making my job a lot easier and for all your help in creating our return-to-work policy. How nice that was to already have a detailed outline in place of what happens next!"
