Avoiding a Surge in HR Complaints: COVID-19 Legal Issues for Your Practice
Pullman & Comley Health Care attorney Michael A. Kurs and Labor and Employment attorneys Megan Y. Carannante and Jonathan B. Orleans presented a webinar focused on employment issues facing healthcare practices since the start of COVID-19.
How has the coronavirus pandemic changed the way your practice operates? What concessions has your practice had to make to essential services for your patients while addressing complex employment matters brought on by the pandemic?
This Connecticut-focused educational webinar looked at some of the immediate challenges and opportunities facing physician practices, and also looked to the future to see how recent legislative developments will shape the group practice’s role in the healthcare delivery system going forward.
Topics addressed included:
- The Families Coronavirus Response Act – what recent changes to the regulations mean for medical practices
- Connecticut Paid Family & Medical Leave – mandatory paid Family & Medical Leave is coming to Connecticut; what you need to do to prepare
- Liability Concerns: Identifying COVID-infected staff, testing of staff, liability to claims from insufficient PPE, cleaning, and other realities
