Dear Clients and Friends:

As employers struggle to respond to the everchanging environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, they are faced with new questions each day. Our lawyers have been actively working with our clients to help answer those tough questions. At the same time, our lawyers are actively monitoring the pronouncements from state and federal officials, analyzing the new laws passed in response to the pandemic, and assessing the legal implications for our clients and their businesses. We have built a COVID-19 resource center on our website and we are sending out e-alerts daily to provide critical information to help employers make informed decisions. Clients can access our Coronavirus Resource Center here.

Our Labor and Employment Team is offering two complimentary webinars next week to address common issues employers are facing and new obligations under laws that take effect on April 1, 2020.
