As Employment and Labor Law attorneys here at Pearlman Brown & Wax, we understand that employers are experiencing deep concerns regarding COVID-19. Societal reactions to COVID19 are changing on a daily basis. We understand that our employer clients want to be apprised of employee concerns, employee rights, and employer duties and obligations as a result of COVID19 in the workplace. There are current pushes at the municipal, state, and federal level regarding assistance to employers and employees. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act are two new federal laws that will impact Americans as a result of those efforts. The Department of Labor has issued guidance, and temporary regulations most recently on April 1, 2020, on how these new laws will be implemented. Here are the key takeaways for our clients to date.
