Tracking COVID-19’s impact on employment law: difficult at best, contradictory at worst

By Lisa Milam, J.D. and Joy P. Waltemath, J.D.

“Practitioners have told us they don’t have time to sleep, there’s no such thing as a weekend, and that if they write something in the morning, it’s out of date by the afternoon.”

As part of Above the Law’s COVID-19 special coverage, Labor & Employment Law Daily experts Lisa Milam and Joy Waltemath took their turn at responding to the following questions:

1. What are the immediately apparent effects of the current crisis on labor and employment practitioners?
2. Are you seeing client demand for legal services change? How?
3. What are some additional responsibilities the COVID-19 crisis has foisted on employers?
4. What are the confidentiality issues that arise when employers must conduct testing?
5. The uncertainty about COVID-19 and resulting legal responsibilities has created unease among both employers and employees. Where is that evident?
6. Do you foresee lasting changes to employment law that will endure past the point when the crisis has subsided?
7. How do you think employment law practitioners will seek to differentiate themselves in the new competitive landscape?
