  3. Not providing employee training in a recorded format for all employees to view on demand. 
  4. Allowing telecommuting without a proper policy or system in place.
  5. Ignoring other legal developments like failing to provide updated protected employee classes.
  6. Allowing employees to simultaneously receive sick pay or PPP funds along with unemployment.  
  7. Not considering retaliation and the National Labor Relations Act when making termination and / or return-to-work decisions.  
  8. Failing to understand Federal and State Leave Laws and how these overlap.  
  9. Ignoring potential disability accommodations. 
  10. Disregarding the importance of public relations and social media for reputation purposes.
