Even before reaching pandemic status earlier this month, the COVID-19 coronavirus dramatically changed the way Americans live and work. Every day, employers are bombarded with new information, rapidly changing guidance from federal and state agencies and authorities, and growing concern among the public at large.
So how does a workplace respond to a threat that is ever-evolving while remaining compliant with a web of employment, benefits and privacy laws, as well as possible new legislation?
In this special video alert, McAfee & Taft employment lawyers Charlie Plumb, Kirk Turner and Paul Ross offer employers insights and practical information and advice regarding this fast-moving and fast-developing subject. They are joined by employee benefits lawyer Jim Prince, who looks at how new IRS guidance will affect certain health plans and how employers should be handling confidential health information.
