Even though we are physically apart, we’ve still connected virtually to bring you the latest updates each week through the pandemic. Over the course of the past few months, we’ve had a weekly remote rundown revolving around employment law during the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, Jim Ries talks to Labor and Employment attorneys Veronica Yu, Sarah Sawyer, and Russell Berger about how different places, like Pennsylvania and Maryland, interpret laws and guidances differently.
Stay tuned for the end when Jim asks about what the attorneys do in their spare time… hopefully, it’s more than only Sunday football!
