About The Event
COVID-19 has triggered an economic downturn, which in turn has led to a historic number of layoffs and unemployment claims. Previous economic downturns that led to layoffs and increased unemployment, and RIF’s have resulted in allegations of WARN Act violations and amendments intended to bolster discrimination and wage and hour laws.
Admittedly, under the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, there are some relief provisions related to employers and employees, however, it says nothing about the suspension of the WARN Act. The result: employers are left with myriad issues related to RIFs, dealing with employee issues, and protecting the company from liability.
Understanding the WARN Act requirements and what is required by employers to take advantage of CARES Act provisions is key.
In this webinar, we will cover an employer’s obligations and practical strategies to limit liability arising out of COVID-related RIF’s and furloughs.
