COVID-19: What Employees Need To Know

COVID-19 has turned the employment world upside down. Throughout the country, many workers are facing the reality of unemployment for the first time. While these are troubling and confusing times, the experienced employment attorneys at Widman & Franklin are here to help.

The coronavirus prompted the Federal government, State governors, the CDC and the Department of Health to place new restrictions and regulations on employers and workplaces. COVID-19 also led to modifications to Unemployment and the FMLA as well as the creation of Emergency Paid Sick Leave. Our attorneys are licensed in Ohio and other states and have thoroughly researched these new provisions in order to offer the best practical and legal advice.

Employees have important rights. If you are confused about the new laws and regulations or concerned about whether your rights are being violated, Widman & Franklin can help. We have represented individual employees with labor and employment related issues for decades. During this overwhelming time, Widman & Franklin is your trusted resource for COVID-19 related employment issues.
