Employment Law

In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are working with employers to help them address new challenges they are facing, especially those connected to the health and safety of their employees, restarting their operations, and navigating a new, rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

We are fielding and advising on a range of situations and challenges, including:

  • Should employers test for COVID-19?
  • What steps should an employer take if an employee tests positive for COVID-19?
  • How do employers bring workers back safely?
  • What options are available for reducing the workforce?
  • As an employer, am I eligible for tax credits or social security tax deferral?
  • What policies should be adopted and communicated to comply with new coronavirus-related reforms?
  • If your employee is out sick or caring for a family member, can and how does the employee get paid and must the employer hold the employee’s job?
  • Do you have a notice obligation under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act to provide 60 days advance notice to your employees prior to a plant closing or mass layoff resulting from unforeseeable business circumstances?
  • What can you do about your employees’ health insurance?

As legislation continues to be issued and these and other concerns continue to unfold, we encourage you to subscribe to our legal alerts to get new notifications sent directly to your inbox. If you have a pressing concern, contact Tracy Armstrong.
