Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Lockdowns

Society for Human Resource Management

One year ago, few could imagine a nation under lockdown. But as the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, many are wondering what lessons can be learned in the event of another lockdown or future crises? The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) connected with Nelson Mullins Partner Ann Murray to discuss what employers can take away from the self-imposed and regional lockdowns that took place in 2020, whether it’s the success of remote work for many employees, the challenges others find with teleworking or which employees are essential workers who are not eligible for telework. SHRM reporter Allen Smith writes, “If more lockdowns are on the way in 2021, they’ll be prepared.”

“One of the new revelations that came out of the first wave of lockdowns was that it really is possible to successfully operate a large portion of U.S. businesses with all or a portion of the workforce remote,” said Murray. She explained that whether an employee could or must work remotely depended on several factors in the initial lockdowns. The most important of which was what regulations or orders were issued by the federal, state, or local government. But there were also others to be considered.

In the future, Murray said that “these will still have an important impact on the decision of who can or must work remotely.”
