The COVID-19 crisis has had significant legal implications on nearly all aspects of life, but particularly in the world of labor and employment law. This up-to-the minute webinar will cover the new and ever-evolving labor and employment laws and the private causes of action anticipated to come from the coronavirus outbreak. Topics will include (1) how to avoid litigation through compliance with laws like the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the CARES Act; (2) litigation likely to arise from the unique ADA/FEHA obligations created by employees working from home; (3) the wage and hour implications of furloughs, layoffs and reductions in pay; and (4) the liability issues involved in employees returning to work when COVID-19 continues to be a threat. Whether you’re providing legal advice to employers/employees or are an employer/employee yourself, you’ll want to understand the latest there is to know in the quickly changing landscape of labor/employment law.
