Let the Lawsuits Begin: Employers Already Are Being Sued Over COVID-19 Issues
In addition to dealing with the “new normal” of shuttered workplaces, remote employees, layoffs, pay reductions, and new state and federal legislation seemingly on a daily basis, employers should anticipate a torrent of employment-related lawsuits flowing from the COVID-19 pandemic. From wage and hour violations, to discrimination claims, to whistleblower claims, to WARN Act claims, to health and safety allegations, to even wrongful death suits, this program will discuss what types of litigation employers should prepare to face. We will review the COVID-19 related litigation we have seen to date, what we anticipate to be the next wave of litigation and how both underscore the need for employers to be vigilant about legal compliance in this ever-changing COVID-19 landscape.
