Employer Considerations for Employee Return to Work

May 19, 2020

Dykema’s Labor & Employment Practice Group created a Q&A overview addressing best practices for employers to consider when businesses return to work. The document discusses frequently asked questions concerning employer recalls, pay and benefits, medical documentation, personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, and more.

The Q&A stemmed from Dykema’s May 7, 2020, webinar “When Life Returns to ‘Normal’: Post-Pandemic Legal and HR Considerations for Employers. If you would like to further explore any of the topics from the Q&A, or if you have any questions, please contact Elisa Lintemuth ( or Arlene Switzer Steinfield (
