Dinsmore partner Brian Moore provides an overview of hot employment law issues already being litigated and likely to face judicial scrutiny in the months to come. He and host Jill Francisco discuss COVID-19-era legislation that protects many employees who need to take emergency leave to care for loved ones.
The two also explore relaxed privacy protections, leave eligibility, spikes in COVID-19 related employment cases, and employer-mandated vaccines. A common issue Moore sees: Former employees claiming COVID-19 is a pretext for wrongful termination.
