VIDEO: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Workplace
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the workplace forever, and it won't be the same as it was just a few months ago. As more states start to reopen and people begin returning to work, certain policies and practices from the past are bound to change.
In the video above, Nellie Brown, director of Workplace Health and Safety Programs for the Worker Institute at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations, talks about the impact of COVID-19 on the workplace.
In the video, she predicts:
- a greater interest in crisis planning and prevention
- more attention to policies involving sick leave
- more attention to the hours people work and the staffing levels in companies
- seeing more collective bargaining
