Coronavirus - Employment and Regulatory Implications to Lenders
Daniella Casseres and Ari Karen
On March 10, New York became the first state to require lenders to submit a coronavirus contingency plan. Lenders must be prepared to have plans to face the employment and regulatory challenges that may lie ahead. Lenders may need to update employment practices/policies and/or take steps to avoid incurring losses associated with pending loan applications.
During this webinar will discuss the legal and practical issues facing lenders associated with the coronavirus, as well as addressing:
- Avoiding lock extensions fees
- LO Comp on interest rate reductions
- Americans With Disabilities Act, FMLA, WARN Act
- Remote work station regulatory requirements
- Sick leave policies and state laws
