The New Jersey Business Action Center (NJBAC), a no-cost, confidential “business-first” resource housed within the New Jersey Department of State, will host a free webinar titled, “COVID-19 Workplace Health/Safety & Worker Benefits: What Employers Need To Know” on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 12 p.m. EST. The webcast will provide New Jersey businesses of all sizes with critical information regarding COVID-19 workplace safety and employee benefits.
In partnership with the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development, this tri-county virtual event will also feature economic development leaders from Hudson, Bergen and Passaic counties.
Speakers will discuss state and federal worker benefits and protections, as well as health and safety resources for employers. Worker benefits topics will include reports on earned sick leave, paid family leave and more.
“The NJBAC is committed to helping New Jersey businesses, especially when most are recovering and trying to get back to work during these uncertain times,” said Melanie Willoughby, executive director of the NJBAC. “These resources can help business owners understand the updated COVID-19 workplace safety rules and worker benefits directly from the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development.”
Speakers from the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development include:
• Holly Low, Manager of Strategic Outreach
• Mark Wadiak, Assistant Director
Willoughby, of the NJBAC, along with representatives from the aforementioned North Jersey counties, will also speak.
The webinar will be streamed live, and the slides and the recording will be circulated to all registrants after the webcast. Guests will be invited to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
