During the fast changing developments of this week, you no doubt have been inundated with email correspondence on the various legislation pending and/or passed to address employment matters resulting from the coronavirus crisis. We have held back on adding to that volume of information. However, please know that we are current and knowledgeable about the various laws that have been passed, executive orders issued and pending legislation. Indeed, we have been fielding questions and inquiries all week. Applying these laws/orders to individual business situations is often very difficult if not ill-advised short of a more thorough discussion. Our primary concern is that you not simply know the law, but that it gets applied correctly to your situation based on your circumstances. During the week the focus was primarily on employees affected by the coronavirus in various ways, but is changing with state governments ordering broad business shutdown. We expect that next week will bring more regulations and interpretation – for example the Secretary of Labor will be issuing a required employer notice related to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act by no later than Wednesday of next week. Accordingly, please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any questions you have. Our primary attorney contact is Tony Resimius. If you are not able to reach Tony, ask for Dave Gass. As always, all of our attorneys stand ready to answer any questions you have on any legal concerns. We at Rohde Dales are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic with respect to its impact on our team, our clients, and our communities. While doing so, we will remain open to service our clients’ needs. Our attorneys and paralegals can service your needs from remote locations. Our technology systems support our professional staff's ability to work remotely by providing access in a secure environment. Given the far-reaching restrictions on personal interaction, we will look to meet with clients via teleconference or video conference as much as reasonably possible. However, we remain willing to meet with clients in-person. We have and will continue to take appropriate measures to protect our staff. We recognize that the current health crisis is constantly evolving and are prepared to adjust and react as necessary and appropriate. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
