Ballard Spahr's Labor and Employment and Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Groups will address the issues employers are facing with furloughs and layoffs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will include a discussion of what the differences are between the two programs, as well as considerations for the mechanics and structuring of a program.

We will address the employment law issues to be considered, such as WARN and other notice obligations, wage and hour issues, duty to bargain with unions, paid leave (including the Families First Coronavirus Response Act), and qualification for unemployment compensation. We also will address benefits implications, including compliance issues and options for your health and retirement plans, how employees can pay for benefits, and other employee benefit considerations.
