(Last Updated: 6/16/2020)

Main Menu

Being able to reopen may depend heavily on your ability to have the staff available to meet demand. Begin by reviewing the questions below and then the topic-specific resources.
  • Have you created a staffing plan to reopen? Will it need to be set in phases?
  • Will you need to lay anyone off?
  • Will your staff be able to work fully or partially on a remote basis?
  • Have you communicated with your employees about the plan?
  • Have you considered what your new staffing model means in terms of your obligations, e.g., insurance, taxes, benefits, etc.?
  • Do you have a plan to train your staff on new procedures – including safety and health procedures?
