FPLG COVID-19 RESPONSE
[UPDATE: May 26, 2020]
Nonprofit employers struggle to keep up with rapidly changing employment laws due to COVID-19.
Complicating these issues are the interim “reopening” laws passed by each of the 50 states. This is a developing story that we will update frequently.
[March 31, 2020]
For the many nonprofits with paid staff, the COVID-19 pandemic magnifies the already complicated maze of federal, state, and local laws that govern the employer-employee relationship.
On top of an existing pattern of legal rights and duties come new benefits and obligations, particularly – but not only – from the recent Congressional action that has upended sick and family leave laws.
We’ll cover many of these topics in our FAQs as well as in periodic blog posts.
