Program Description:

As we persevere through truly unprecedented times navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our workforce is a foremost priority. HR leaders weighing temporary layoffs and furloughs are struggling to find the best option in trying times. Many have questions on how to properly execute and communicate their reductions to their employees. Some are wary of the impact of unemployment filings and how it will affect their organizations. Our webinar will discuss:

•Properly messaging and executing your workforce reductions

•How to communicate the UI process and expectations to your employees

•What to expect as emergency federal legislation is applied to state UI agencies 

•Potential scenarios as the Covid-19 crisis continues to unfold

•Best practices to manage your UI cost and compliance moving forward 

The presentation will be followed with a question and answer period. Attendees are encouraged to pose any questions they may have relative to their workforce and impacted states of operation. You can forward your questions in advance to Meghan Avery at mavery@utcainc.com.
