In case you missed the New York Credit Union Association’s informative and timely discussion exploring New York state’s new HERO Act and what it means for credit unions, it is now available on-demand.
In the webinar, Henry Meier, the Association’s senior vice president and general counsel, breaks down what the new law means for credit unions, including that the law requires all workplaces in New York state to adopt comprehensive workplace policies outlining basic obligations related to combating airborne infectious diseases.
“All employers, no matter what size, have to comply with the HERO Act,” Meier said during the presentation.
Among other things, the law requires employers to adopt minimum policies addressing employee health screenings; availability of personal protective equipment; regular cleaning of office equipment; effective social distancing; consideration of flexible work hours and remote services; and more. The law places significant mandates on all employers, including credit unions, and requires employers to create workplace safety committees.
As updates are made to mandates or guidance related to the HERO Act becomes available, Association leadership will follow up as quickly as possible to provide credit unions with more information on the key issues, Meier said.
