COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the economic and social fabric of the United States. As more and more state and local jurisdictions are enacting stay at home policies that restrict individuals' activities and businesses' operations in efforts to counter the virus's spread, employers are increasingly evaluating different scenarios that will both take care of their employees and keep their businesses afloat amid this economic crisis. In this episode, Greg Lewis provides a high-level view of the employment law landscape to assist employers with both considerations. This episode explains some of the most common forms of wage and hour reductions employers implement during seasons of financial hardship and highlights some of the obligations employers owe their employees when these reductions occur.
