With the status of COVID-19 changing on a near-daily basis and the state's stop-and-go reopening process, employers are faced with unique employment law challenges related to safety complaints, reluctant or unwilling employees, mask-wearing debates, accommodation of medical and personal issues, and the ongoing impact of FFCRA benefits for illness and child care unavailability.

  • Ensuring a safe workplace
  • Addressing employee complaints regarding safety
  • Handling employee disputes regarding PPE and social distancing
  • The employer's ability to enforce mask-wearing
