The Exhibition Services and Contractors Association is starting “Virtual Happy Hour Conversations,” a monthly town hall-style meeting (by Zoom) for their members. This Thursday, Nov. 12, they will have GES Assistant General Counsel Jon Massimino from 2-4 p.m. Central Time. Massimino will be discussing some of the legal issues around COVID-19 including:
- What happens if someone tests positive for COVID-19, is sent home due to symptoms, or risk of contact with the virus– Is there workers compensation that comes into play?
- An employee or worker comes to the job-site for work and later tests positive, or travels for work and later tests positive – Is there liability for the employer?
- Employees working from home – what liability challenges does that create?
There will also be an opportunity for Q&A so come prepared for a lively conversation with your fellow ESCA members. If you wish to submit questions in advance, please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
