The changes and challenges retailers face today are unprecedented. Some stores have had to close their doors temporarily, unsure of when they’ll be able to reopen, and others have faced overwhelming demand and new challenges on how to keep customers and employees safe. The employment landscape has been thrown for a loop, and leaders are trying to do what’s best for both business and employees. The government has stepped in with new programs aiming to help businesses, and leaders are charged with navigating these new programs while also considering existing employment regulation. Needless to say, there are often more questions than answers.
Join us as we bring in employment law experts, Alex Meier, Justin Curley and Ari Hersher from Seyfarth Shaw to help understand the new federal programs and navigate existing regulation. The team will cover:
- Unemployment Considerations Under the CARES Act
- Wage & Hour Considerations in the COVID-19 Era
- Staffing: Issues related to reduced schedule/hours, reductions in force, layoffs, furloughs, and returning employees to work
- Federal WARN Act and Mini-WARN requirements
