This fall, working parents with school-age kids will be facing some tough times as they try to balance working from home and partially home-schooling their kids. Many schools will either be going exclusively remote or a combination of online and socially distanced in-person classes. And things may change suddenly if COVID-19 cases spike, or if someone at the school tests positive.

How can employers help their employees navigate these unpredictable times and, frankly, their potentially upended work schedules?

Our panel of Conference Board experts (and parents), Gad Levanon, Vice President Labor Markets, Amy Abel, Vice President Human Capital, and Elizabeth Crofoot, Senior Economist Labor Markets, discuss the following topics:

  • How many families in the US are affected by remote learning?
  • What are the problems that working parents are facing?
  • How are the most innovative companies helping workers balance their roles as employees and parents?
