REGISTER HERE to join FortneyScott’s complimentary Employer Briefing on Monday, August 24th from noon to 1:00 pm ET.

In this briefing we will address (1) the latest developments affecting employers operating during the COVID pandemic; (2) the newest challenges employers are facing as part of the broad-based focus on discrimination in America; and, (3) the key legal and federal agency developments.

FortneyScott’s attorneys will cover:

  • The latest on the standoff between Congress and the White House as they decide whether to extend COVID assistance; create liability safe harbors for employers or provide other relief for employers and employees;
  • The ever-changing landscape employers are facing – growing litigation claims, reluctant workers, uncertainty on school re-openings and the resulting conflicting demands on workers; and
  • Legal and agency developments, including updates on the Executive Order and Presidential Memoranda issued August 8, 2020 addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, and the latest developments involving EEOC and DOL’s agencies, including the Wage and Hour Division, OSHA and OFCCP.
