OVERVIEW

The Coronavirus may have brought much of the world as we know it to a temporary halt. Employment laws, and employers’ obligations, however, are not on hold.

Employers still have an obligation to provide their employees a safe, workplace, free of harassment and discrimination. Employers are still required to make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities. But how does an employer meet these seemingly competing interests?

With Congress just having passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, and some States looking to file suit, the legal landscape has changed and may continue to change for a while. In this webinar we will explore those and other issues relevant to employers in today’s climate.
