HR Roundtable for Small Businesses

May 13, 2021 | 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

As a small business owner, you manage every aspect of your business, from marketing to sales, to payroll. When it comes to human resources, you are also responsible for creating polices, addressing staff concerns, and ensuring your company is complying with all regulations. But what if you don’t always have the answers? Join the Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce and Scott Cruz, labor and employment attorney at Greensfelder, Hemker, & Gale, P.C., as he answers your HR related questions and discusses legal issues that may be affecting your business.  
Whether you have questions about the best way to make changes to your paid time off policy, how to classify an independent contractor, or hiring an intern, this question and answer session is a great way to discuss your issues and work through them with a legal expert, as well as your peers.    
If time allows some current topics that may be addressed, include:  
  • What’s the CDC’s latest guidance on quarantining for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals following a potential or confirmed COVID exposure in your workplace? 
  • If and when the facemask mandate is lifted, can a business still require employees to wear facemasks in the workplace? 
  • Can a business require that employees provide proof of vaccination? 
  • How are businesses managing unemployment through August under the American Rescue Plan Act?  
  • What other guidance and or legislation is expected to come out on the local, state, and federal levels that may affect small  businesses? 
Come ready with your questions or topics to share and listen to concerns from your fellow business owners. Nervous about asking a question during the forum? We get it! Feel free to submit a question in advance to    
This event is free to all LPCC members and will take place virtually on Zoom.
