With return-to-work plans in full swing, the year 2021 created a host of new challenges for employers and employees alike. Meanwhile, a renewed spotlight on workplace diversity, equity and inclusion — largely spurred by the Black Lives Matter protests of last year — continues to pressure companies to reevaluate their policies that may have had an adverse impact on marginalized groups. As a result, claims of workplace discrimination and retaliation by vulnerable individuals (such as pregnant women, working mothers, immunocompromised employees, workers over 60, employees of color and others) remain a steady liability risk to businesses during the pandemic.
