Events in February–June 2021
- - February 25 2021: Managing Workload
February 25 2021: Managing Workload
The pandemic, move to remote work, and dependent care challenges bring issues of workload to the forefront. We complain about having too much to do in too little time but rarely do we make a concerted effort to identify and address root causes. It’s not just a case of staffing capacity. Often, individual behaviors and organizational culture push folks to take on more and more with expectations of immediacy. In this session, we will discuss strategies at the individual, supervisory, and organizational levels. We’ll also model and talk about what that process for tackling workload might look like within your organization.
This session will be facilitated by Gordon Gottlieb, Human Resources Consultant at TDC, whose work focuses on the evolving human resource and board development needs of small to medium sized nonprofit organizations throughout New England. Gordon is an annual presenter at the NPFM.

March 25 2021: Vaccine Nation!!! Return to Work & Employer Obligations
This session will be led by Jeff Siegel, a partner at Morgan, Brown, & Joy (https://www.morganbrown.com/attorney/jeffrey-s-siegel/).
Jeff advises and represents employers of all sizes on all aspects of labor and employment law. Most recently, his practice has focused on advising clients on the employment aspects of COVID-19 – including furloughs, employee pay issues, employee leaves of absence under new and existing laws, PPP applications and forgiveness terms, day-to-day human resources matters, and return to work obligations.
Jeff will present on on-going concerns with COVID-19 in employment from the employer's perspective. He will discuss whether employers can mandate the COVID vaccine and/or tests, an update on laws and initiatives to protect workers (such as OSHA under the Biden administration), leaving time to answer additional questions on how the pandemic continues to impact your workplace.
