Stephanie Loughner, Partner and Co-Chair of the firm’s Employment Group, recently spoke with Monica Vendituoli at the Denver Business Journal about the impact of COVID-19 on area businesses and the advice she’s sharing with clients struggling to adapt to working remotely or to the shutdown.
The article, What Colorado Employment Lawyers are Telling Their Clients About COVID-19, was published in the March 30 edition of the Denver Business Journal. An excerpt from the article is below.
COVID-19, also referred to coronavirus, has kept Colorado employment lawyers busy. Employment lawyers told DBJ that they have divided most of their advice into three buckets, each facing different legal issues: (1) employers whose businesses have been deemed essential, (2) employers who have been able to transition to remote work and (3) employers whose companies have been forced to close.
COVID-19 has caused the most strife for businesses that have been forced to close, Stephanie D. Loughner, partner and co-chair of Denver-based Moye White’s employment group, said.
“Many of our clients have not been faced with having to layoff employees and this is now a new reality,” Loughner said. “A need for a reduction in force is hitting the emotions of our clients as hard as it is hitting the emotions and anxiety of the employees alike.”
