COVID-19, the 2019 novel coronavirus (“COVID-19” or the “coronavirus”) continues to stress US employers attempting to prevent the disease from spreading in their workplaces while continuing to operate effectively. With each passing day, health authorities provide more information about the spread of the disease and federal, state and local governments impose additional restrictions that impact businesses, their employees and their customers/clients. As the commercial and social environment rapidly changes, we are continuing to address a wide variety of labor and employment issues arising from those changes. We address some of those basic issues in US: Critical COVID-19 labor and employment issues for employers. Remember that individual situations can vary and it is always best to seek legal advice based on the particular jurisdictions where your employees work. Some states, such as New York, New Jersey and California have state laws that exceed or vary from the requirements of federal law. For more information and Q&As that will help US employers to navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19, see US: Critical COVID-19 labor and employment issues for employers.
