Returning to the Office: Legal and Practical Considerations for Keeping Your Team Safe

Real Estate Education Series
May 11, 2021 at 10:00am11:00am (PDT)

Farella's Ashley Breakfield (moderator) and Holly Sutton, along with guest speaker Tom Cashin from Shorenstein, discuss “Returning to the Office: Legal and Practical Considerations for Keeping Your Team Safe.” 

COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandates caused employers to close their locations or significantly reduce operations, leaving many commercial buildings empty. As state and local COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted, building landlords and employers are starting to put together plans and procedures for returning to the office. Each business will have unique considerations to maintain healthy business operations and a safe work environment. Panelists discuss the landlord/tenant considerations for keeping your team safe, including:

  • What are a building’s common area requirements and challenges
  • Who is monitoring access to the worksite
  • What specific asks have landlords or tenants made because of COVID-19
  • How ventilation / HVAC and seasonal weather impacts the building
  • How will contracts or lease negotiations change  
  • How COVID-19-related obligations, including PPE, signage, and masking, have been handled between landlords and tenants
  • What are other potential solutions and approaches to returning the workforce to on-site employment
