What You Need to Know to Safely Return to the Office


May 13, 2021




Teresa Shaak



It’s been over an year of working remotely during the pandemic and now you may be close to inviting staff back into the newsroom, ad department and other vital areas of your news company.  What should you be thinking about?

Listen, talk and learn!  This webinar will feature legal tips as well as an opportunity for a roundtable discussion with your colleagues around the state.

Vincent Candiello, Esq., a member at Cozen O’Connor, Harrisburg, will discuss legal liabilities and potential challenges as well as best practices for an effective return.  What will the new normal look like?  Safety and well-being are of utmost concern.  But, how? What can you require or not dictate as far as masks, distancing, vaccines, illness, etc.  Ensure that you are prepared and not putting yourself, your company and your valued staff at risk.

Candiello’s presentation will be followed by a moderated opportunity for participants to share ideas, suggestions, plans and questions from their own offices.  Cate Barron, president of PA Media Group, will lead the discussion.  We encourage all attendees to participate in this open discussion.

This 60-minute webinar is scheduled to begin promptly at 11 a.m., eastern time.

Registrants must have both a computer and audio/phone in order to participate.

There is no cost for PNA members.  Non-member fee: $20.

To register, complete the form below or email the PNA Foundation.  A confirmation with log in instructions will be sent to each registrant one or two days prior to the session.
