Third Thursday Webinar: COVID-19 Updates for Employers as of March 26

March 26, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Please join us for a special edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, public health, business continuity and legal issues are changing daily. Many developments, from state and local closure and “stay at home” orders, to new federal, state, and local laws mandating job protected sick leave and other forms of leave for employees who are unable to work, are creating ongoing challenges to employers in determining if and how they can continue to operate their businesses in this unique environment. 

During this webinar, we will discuss recent developments regarding compliance with employment laws related to COVID-19, with particular emphasis on the implications of new guidance from EEOC and OSHA on employer rights and obligations, state and local laws requiring closure or reduction of non-essential businesses, and provisions in the Families First Act that provides paid sick leave benefits and tax credits in many situations. We will review the application of employment laws, including WARN and paid sick leave laws, to furloughs and closures. And we will summarize emerging best practices for employers on issues such as maintaining on-site employees during the outbreak, communications to employees and managing the workforce when facing possible coronavirus cases in the workplace, and strategies to manage teleworking arrangements. 

This webinar is scheduled for March 26, 2020, at 12:00 pm Eastern. We hope that you can join us and participate in a lively discussion of these issues.
