The New Normal: COVID-19 Legal Developments and the Impact on the Workplace

Due to the significant and growing impact the coronavirus has had on the workplace, businesses must balance a complex combination of issues to respond to and effectively manage workplace issues related to the coronavirus, including: the Families First COVID-19 Response Act (FFCRA), the CARES Act, shelter-in-place ordinances, paid sick leave laws, unemployment insurance, notice requirements, managing a remote workforce, and many of the fast-paced developments at the federal, state, and local levels.  Employers need to know what their responsibilities are, available resources, and recommended approaches.
