The coronavirus (or COVID-19) began in Wuhan, China but has now reached the United States.  It can easily be spread from person to person.  While most individuals will recover without complications, the disease has caused multiple deaths around the world.  Employers are now weighing their obligations to maintain a safe working environment for their employees and their options to ensure how to do so.  This webinar will cover legal concerns employers must consider in dealing with the coronavirus, and we will discuss:

  • Coverage of the Families First Coronavirus Act
  • Relaxing no fault attendance policies
  • Legal concerns in allowing employees to work remotely
  • Wage and hour considerations
  • State laws protecting employees for adverse action when they have been quarantined
