The spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has resulted in uncharted territory for employers throughout the United States. Now that the World Health Organization has labeled the coronavirus a pandemic, what do employers need to know, and what are they required to do? What should an organization do if one of its employees tests positive for the virus? What relief could be coming for small businesses and other organizations that may struggle to stay afloat without employees at work?
Greg Rouchell and Margaret Myers address employers’ most frequently-asked questions and share best practices and the latest guidance on employment law issues and coronavirus.
Greg leads Adams and Reese’s Labor and Employment Law Team and counsels clients on the full spectrum of labor and employment issues, representing them in litigation that surfaces under both federal and state law — from class action lawsuits to individual workplace claims. He is also a commercial litigator, defending companies and financial institutions in an array of cases, including high-stakes disputes.
Margaret focuses her labor and employment practice on the areas of proactive management and human resources guidance and counseling, advising on employment law compliance. She represents employers in disputes before state and federal agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other federal, state and local administrative agencies.
Upcoming webinars will take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons through the rest of March. Topics will include global supply chain and logistics issues, construction contracts, insurance coverage and disputes and more. Stay tuned for further information on this series.
