The last few weeks have been filled with one headline after another about the coronavirus pandemic. Add to that, almost daily client alerts and legal programs, and it’s been a challenge for employers (and even their counsel) to keep up with all the developments and to think about what comes next. In this hour-long video webinar, Shipman & Goodwin attorneys Gabe Jiran, Daniel Schwartz and Keegan Drenosky will take a step back from the rush of headlines to provide some insight into how employers should be approaching the legal issues that have been arising and plan for the future.

In the program, we will cover:

  • What existing and new laws are most critical for employers to consider?
  • What are the issues that employers will need to address next in this pandemic?
  • How can employers avoid the legal issues that will inevitably arise over time and with hindsight?
  • What comes next for litigation and legal proceedings and what can employers expect?
  • What options are available to employers when it comes to staffing, including furloughs, layoffs and Connecticut’s “Shared Work” program?

Bring your questions, as we will leave time to address the issues of the day that keep arising during this fast-moving and unpredictable crisis.
