The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate and ongoing impact on employment litigation across the country, affecting virtually every industry. Since the beginning of the pandemic, over 2,000 cases have been filed against employers, with more than 95% of those cases involving retaliation and discrimination claims. In this session, we will explore these pandemic-related litigation trends thus far, the types of claims we believe are on the horizon for 2022, and the steps employers ought to be thinking about now to prepare themselves for those claims.
Discussion Topics & Objectives:
- COVID-19’s Impact on Employment Litigation (20 minutes)
