None of us has ever been through anything like the COVID-19 pandemic. Each day brings orders from governors and mayors. State laws are shifting. To provide widespread economic relief, the Federal government has passed legislation that significantly affects employer operations. What is a human resource professional to do? If you are reading this, you have a great start. You can use your Employer Council resources to help you get through this:
- Read the weekly Hot Topics and any additional alerts. They will keep you informed about the shifting laws and government orders.
- Go to EmployersCouncil.org and look at the information we have about COVID-19. Not only do we have blogs, but we also have FYIs you might find helpful. We also surveyed our members about their responses to this unprecedented event; their responses are there to review.
- Call or email us to get answers to your questions. Our attorneys and HR consultants are here to serve you. We can walk you through employment issues you might be facing during the pandemic. If you aren’t sure who to contact, use the chat on the member portal of our website or scroll down the page for the email and phone number.
Together, we will get through this. We will learn a lot, and we will be stronger. Our staff is dedicated to helping you with your needs during this difficult time. See our COVID-19 Resources page for more information.
