Mental Health Accommodations in the Age of COVID-19
Over a year has passed since the COVID-19 pandemic caused employers to modify daily operations and reassess where, when, and how their business is done. Workers across the globe have juggled work, family life, caregiving responsibilities, financial uncertainty, social isolation, and so much more – all while struggling with mental health related issues like anxiety, depression, sleep issues, and substance misuse. As we transition to the next stage of business operations during a pandemic, how can employers continue (or begin) to support workers with mental health conditions?
Join us for a conversation about:
• Employer supports and reasonable accommodations for workers with mental health conditions
• Emerging human resources practices for success
• Practical tips for return-to-work accommodations.
