Maria Dwyer of Clark Hill PLC on Getting Michigan Back to Work

Episode Notes

Maria Fracassa Dwyer is the first woman to serve as Member In Charge of Clark Hill, PLC's Detroit office in its nearly 130 year history.  She experienced another first when she joined her fellow firm leaders to make the call to have all employees work from home.

As the one of the top workplace experts in Michigan, Maria has pivoted the focus of her practice to advising clients on how - and when - to bring employees back to the office. How does business continue amid this crisis?

Maria explains how Clark Hill is bringing people back, as well as other businesses. It comes down to obeying the law first (there have been more than 187 federal and state laws passed during the pandemic). Next, however, employers must find other ways to accommodate their staff.

What will the future hold? Now that many of us have been working from home, will some continue to do so? We explore that as well.
