The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique and unprecedented challenges for businesses everywhere, especially here in New York State. Federal, state and local governments have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by enacting laws and providing guidance, while businesses have attempted to adapt to rapidly changing conditions. As governments are beginning to ease stay-at-home orders and reopen the economy in the coming weeks, New York State employers are grappling with how they can plan, communicate and transition their employees back into the workplace. With continuously evolving guidelines and policies aimed at maintaining the health of both employees and companies, employers are asking themselves the daunting question, “What should we do?”

This two-part webinar series is intended to address many of the issues facing employers as a result of the pandemic. The first webinar will address issues related to employee layoffs and employer relief, including:

  • How to protect against claims of discrimination in the workplace;

  • How to interpret the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, New York Emergency Paid Sick Leave Law, and other paid leave requirements;

  • Issues related to unemployment benefits;

  • WARN Act considerations; and

  • Tips for managing a remote workforce
