Preparing for Employment Challenges in the COVID-19 World: Key Considerations for Employers

07.21.2020 | 1:00-2:00 pm EDT
Event Sponsor: Edgeworth Economics

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a series of legal challenges for which employers should be prepared. Among these are risks associated with potential adverse impact in layoff, furlough, and hiring decisions; pay equity concerns due to changes in salary, work hours, and attrition; misclassification claims for exempt workers and independent contractors; and off-the-clock work claims.  

Join expert labor economists from Edgeworth Economics and Kevin White, co-chair of the Hunton Andrews Kurth Labor and Employment team, on July 21 for this complimentary webinar.

The panelists will discuss the following topics among others:

  • Risk of apparent adverse impact for firms facing layoff and furlough decisions
  • Risk of using hiring benchmarks which do not reflect the current COVID-19 influenced labor market
  • Pay equity issues arising from salary reductions and workplace attrition
  • Pay equity challenges for assessing “comparable” work and productivity for “similarly situated” employees navigating work from home while providing care to others at home
  • Misclassification claims resulting from managers covering non-exempt duties of laid off or furloughed employees
  • Off-the-clock claims from non-exempt employees now working from home, and employees facing daily health checks upon returning to the work place
