Crowell & Moring Announces Election Day as a Paid Day Off for U.S. Personnel

Washington – September 4, 2020: Crowell & Moring U.S. personnel will have a paid day-off for Election Day on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Firm chair Philip T. Inglima announced the decision to the firm on August 21 with the following message:

“So we will take a day off. But not to escape the election; rather, to participate in it. Our Management Board (at the welcomed suggestion of partners Scott Winkelman and Dan Sasse) has determined that this year all US office personnel will have a paid day-off for our Election Day: Tuesday, November 3. The pandemic has visited many challenges upon us, and one of them this year is sure to be the election’s logistics. For those who will vote in person, the day-off will facilitate that effort. For those who seek to volunteer working the polls, or transporting relatives or neighbors to polling stations, it will make that enormously important public service possible. For all of us, it will underscore the importance of being active participants in our democracy. At a time when racial justice issues, voting rights concerns, the pandemic, and economic upheaval are roiling the American people, this election deserves and requires our undivided attention.”
