Helping Clients Overcome Legal Obstacles

Employers are rightfully concerned about maintaining cash flow during this volatile time, and many are wondering if furloughs and reducing employee work schedules are the right moves to make to save on costs.

Our legal team can discuss your situation and help you find solutions to the following employment law matters:

  • Government Relief for Your Business: There are various federal and state loans and grants being made available businesses. What option is best for your business and what requirements are needed? We can guide you on the different government relief packages available and assist with all forms and requirements to help your business with the financial support necessary to weather this crisis.
  • Employment Contracts: Do you have contracts with your executive employees? Are you concerned about honoring those commitments given the unanticipated impact of COVID-19? Conversely, what if any impact has COVID-19 had on an employee’s contractual requirements to your business and does this enable you to offset payment commitments?
  • Temporary Business Closure: Do you have to temporarily halt operations due to the pandemic? Are you wondering if this will be deemed a “necessary event” and you will have to pay partial wages to employees? Contact our attorneys and let us explain the correct legal procedures to enact in order to protect your business.
  • Workers Compensation Insurance: Do you have employees filing workers’ comp claims for workplace injuries caused by COVID-19? Not sure how to respond or if your workers’ compensation insurance covers these claims? Whether insurers will cover workers’ compensation claims for COVID-19 hasn’t been determined in court yet. But with our legal team on your side, you can count on us to guide you through each step of this matter.
  • Health and Safety Law: Have you implemented the correct health and safety procedures to ensure that employees are working safely and maintaining appropriate social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19? Do you know what measures need to be taken if an employee tests positive for COVID-19? We can inform you of the correct procedure and draft an action plan for your employees to follow. This way all of the proper parties and agencies are informed so that any necessary containment measures can be implemented.
  • Work-From-Home: Do you have a clear work-from-home policy for your employees to follow during the pandemic? Are you wondering if you still have to pay the same rate if your employees are working from home and perhaps on a modified schedule? We can answer these questions and more so you aren’t legally liable for unpaid wages and other types of claims.
