The Compliance Resources You Need for 2021

You didn’t get into HR to stress about compliance. But as old laws change and new bills are signed into law, the fight to stay compliant is more challenging than ever—especially as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Within just a few months, COVID-19 reshaped the world of compliance. When companies transitioned to working from home, employers started to face new compliance requirements, such as providing virtual harassment training and distributing workplace posters to remote employees.

Many companies that reopened their offices created contact tracing policies in the case that an employee tests positive for COVID-19—which could violate discrimination laws, like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), if not handled correctly.

Now, as vaccines are being released, the question arises whether employers can require their employees to get vaccinated. Since this question impacts several different laws, the answer to it is much more complex than a simple yes or no.

Undoubtedly, the world of compliance is bound to keep changing as the pandemic goes on. So how can you keep up with all these new laws and regulations?
