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.
