Return-To-Work Panel Discussion:
Critical Workplace and Operational Updates for MedTech Manufacturers amid COVID-19


As many businesses transition from telework arrangements and return to full in-person operations, the FMMC will be hosting this timely webinar, designed to help medtech companies grapple with the many complicated and uncharted employment and operational issues presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will cover a lot of waterfront, including best practices in facility re-opening procedures and safety plans, important employment and worker benefits issues, business contracts, as well as a timely update on the return of FDA inspections and other mission-critical agency activities.
