Employment Law Webinar

with Douglas Duerr
Tuesday, May 26
6 pm
This event is free for SEDDS members.
Event Description
Even before the current public health emergency, employment law issues were becoming increasingly complex, and dental practitioners/practice owners can struggle to comply with state and federal laws in an effort to reduce-if not prevent-claims and liabilities. However, it is often the most fundamental of issues that get employers into trouble with the law.  This webinar is designed to help you recognize and address the fundamentals as we deal with the current crisis and beyond. 
Learning Objectives
After completing this webinar participants will be able to:
  • List employment law errors are dentists particularly prone to.
  • Employment law considerations as you reopen your practice
  • Discuss new federal and state regulations dentists need to be aware of.

Updates to CDC Interim Guidelines and the ADA’s Response

  • HEPA filters are described a bit more. 

 Following the release of this new guidance, the ADA advises that it is still important to wait before disinfecting patient treatment rooms after aerosol-generating procedures, even though the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently removed a recommendation calling for a 15-minute waiting period in its Guidance for Dental Settings.
