News surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic along with the government and business responses to the latest information continues to evolve at staggering pace. Employers continue to grapple with the ever-changing landscape of related legal and business issues.

In this latest video alert, McAfee & Taft employment lawyers Charlie Plumb, Kirk Turner and Courtney Bru examine this new law with its provisions for emergency paid sick leave and emergency FMLA expansion, discuss the consequential implications for employers and employees, and advise employers on what they should be doing now.
