A global pandemic. The expanding gig economy. The legalization of cannabis. Continuous proliferation of new statutes, regulations, orders and guidance across jurisdictions impacting workplaces and human resources. Issues arise that even the most prepared employers do not always expect. On the pulse on emerging workplace issues across the legal landscape, we proactively mitigate risk and ensure compliance with continually changing laws. Our multidisciplinary team, including government relations professionals at federal and state levels, monitor local, state and federal policy and orders to provide employers with real-time and actionable advice on emerging issues. This advice includes recommendations to efficiently synthesize compliance changes with existing human resources policies and practices.
Most recently, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, clients have relied on us to help them navigate the “new normal” for employers—including compliance with federal, state and local guidelines around workplace operations during the pandemic. From adhering to the complex web of requirements and guidance regarding workplace safety mandates to advising on FFCRA and other paid leave laws to the impact of vaccine mandates, we provide real-time legal strategy.
