It’s now time to sever the employment relationship with one of your employees. You would like to make it an amicable divorce if possible. You certainly don’t want to be sued. Before your employee is sitting in front of your desk, about to be administered workplace “capital punishment,” you need to have all your ducks lined up. You need to be ready to touch all the right bases. You need to avoid all the legal landmines. Pick your favorite metaphor… but attend this webinar before that employee walks through your office door.

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Dr. Jim Castagnera, Esq.

View Webinar Details

One of the largest impacts of COVID-19 for employers is the dramatic shift in U.S. work-related visa policies.  Amid the shutdowns, an Executive Order has extended the restriction of the entry into the U.S. by H-1B and L-1 worker-visa seekers through the remainder of 2020. This impacts not only H and L visas, but also J visas awarded to other temporary workers.


Employers that rely on foreign workers to drive the success of their business are left wondering “what now?”  In this 90-minute program you will get a clear understanding of the latest regulations impacting the foreign workforce sector and what it means to your current and future operations.

COVID and the FLSA: How COVID-19 Affects Compliance with Wage & Hour Laws in Telecommuting, Split Team, Intermittent Leave and Other Hybrid Work Arrangements

Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Dr. Jim Castagnera, Esq.

View Webinar Details

As state and local closure orders have been lifted and non-essential businesses reopened, a paradigm shift has occurred. In some localities, recurrence of COVID-19 mandated a two-steps-forward, one-step-back approach toward business as usual. Some firms found that many employees liked telecommuting and wanted to continue. Others realized that social distancing demanded that new schedules were called for. For example, one approach --- split team --- has some team members in the office, while others work from home, often with team members changing places every few days. Ensuring compliance with wage & hour requirements in this new normal may feel akin to herding cats.

 

Join labor/employment lawyer Jim Castagnera as he walks you through the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act and related state and local laws that demand attention in coping with the new normal.
