On Monday, our Employment Law and Retained General Counsel Services Team Lead, James M. Morris, hosted another segment of our COVID-19 Webinar series! Jim discussed the most recent Senate bills and how it may have an impact on your business, as well as COVID vaccinations and the continued vaccine rollout. You can check out our legal blog, which provides updates on the legal changes surrounding Covid-19, here.
Additionally, as those attending the Webinars have learned, Kentucky-based businesses need to "dust off" their Human Resources manual, update with "Work From Home" and "Remote Working" Policies and Procedures, and assure compliance with all OSHA, FMLA, EFMLEA, FFCRA and CARES Act requirements.
Employers are entering a dangerous time, as employees will exhaust their available FMLA Leave, and application of FFCRA, EFMLEA, and other recent federal acts and policies must be carefully monitored. As James explained, there is assistance available, and employers can receive a dollar for dollar reimbursement from the Federal Government -- but each Employer must assure full and accurate compliance with Federal Law, or risk the reimbursement that may be available. These critical compliance steps must be undertaken carefully.
Contact the Retained General Counsel Team at Morris & Morris for more information. From Policies and Procedures, to assuring a safe workplace environment for your remote workers, to compliance with FFCRA, CARES, EFMLEA, Intermittent Leave, to assurance that your business is in compliance with local, state, and federal law, the Retained General Counsel Team can assist your business through these difficult times.
