The team at Rudner Law have been working with our clients to navigate this unprecedented situation, and it is heartening to see that the discussion is shifting from closures and layoffs to getting back to business and safety at work.

Of course, this phase of gradually reopening business raises all sorts of new questions. As we often say, we know that you don’t have “Employment Law issues”; you have business decisions to make. Our job is to make sure that you are aware of your rights and obligations as an employer, so you can make an informed decision.

Below are some of the questions we are being asked. Of course, every situation is different, so I will put the usual disclaimer upfront: this information does not replace legal advice, and we encourage you to speak with an Employment Lawyer before making any decisions. Your specific rights will depend on your situation. In light of the rapidity of change these days, we also note that the information below is current as of this date and may have been superseded by subsequent developments.
