COVID-19 Webinar No. 7: Considerations for Businesses & Employers

May 8, 2020

Downey Brand COVID-19 Webinar Series

Changes are happening. Quickly. With the recent spread of COVID-19 and its imminent effects on the workplace and the economy, state, local, and federal governments are issuing guidance and regulatory and legal changes in efforts to both reduce health risks and address resulting effects on the workplace and economic conditions.

These changes and guidance are rapidly hitting our inboxes and you or your business may need strategies for understanding your legal options. To help, Downey Brand’s client service group is scheduling a series of complimentary webinars, the seventh of which is scheduled for Friday, May 8, 2020, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
