President Trump has signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) into law.

The Coronavirus may have brought much of the world as we know it to a temporary halt. Employment laws, and employers’ obligations, however, are not on hold.

Employers still have an obligation to provide their employees a safe, workplace, free of harassment and discrimination. Employers are still required to make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities.

But how does an employer meet these seemingly competing interests?

With Congress just having passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, and some states looking to follow suit, the legal landscape has changed and may continue to change for a while.

In this webinar, we will explore Families First Coronavirus Response Act and other issues relevant to employers in today’s climate.

Session Highlights:

  • When you can and can’t require employees to be tested:
  • Wage and hour law compliance including remote work requirements and potential shutdowns or furloughs
  • Sick leave and other leaves of absence, including when and how employers must provide sick leave or other statutory leaves of absence for employees affected by coronavirus
  • The Families First Coronavirus Response Act
  • Employee privacy, including when an employer can request health-related information from employees and when and how an employer can communicate with employees about a diagnosed case in the workplace
  • Potential employer liability to employees who become infected by COVID-19 at work

Why You Should Attend:

The FFCRA builds on an $8.3 billion emergency coronavirus spending package enacted into law on March 6 and deals with the immediate public health crisis the COVID-19 pandemic is causing, including many provisions that will have a direct impact on employers nationwide.

As the Coronavirus spreads, employers are finding themselves in a conundrum that seems to grow exponentially, along with the disease. Decisions about working remotely, evaluating potential workplace hazards, and responding to employee concerns and maintaining business operations are just a few of the issues confronting employers.

In addition to the above issues, in this webinar we will discuss an employer’s legal obligations in the face of the pandemic and provide some practical guidance for dealing with crisis.
