Unprecedented Practice Challenges


As management-side employment lawyers, WorkWise Law knows that your medical practices are facing unprecedented challenges right now. For those of you unable to see patients, there are questions about what wage assistance is available for your staff. For practices that are able to remain open, you may have questions about expanded leave entitlements for your employees who get sick with COVID-19 or are taking care of loved ones who become ill.

Join LACMA and WorkWise Law as we cover topics including FFCRA, the differences between furlough and temporary layoffs, telecommuting, EPLI claims and more!
