RESPONSE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Upton & Hatfield values the health and well-being of our employees, clients, families, and communities. To uphold these values, we have implemented recommendations from the Center for Disease Control by encouraging our employees to work remotely whenever possible. This does not change our commitment to you, and we are still available to handle your legal needs and provide you with the highest quality legal services during these unsettled times. Our offices are open, but for urgent matters only in conformity with state and federal authority recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns, we are ready and available to discuss them with you. We want all of us to stay safe while we work during this temporary situation.

COVID-19 Emergency Legislation Passed March 19, 2020

President Trump signed the Emergency FMLA Expansion Act and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act into law last night, March 18, 2020. The acts will go into effect on April 2, 2020. They will remain effective until December 31, 2020. There is also a tax credit for businesses providing leave under the acts.

Upton & Hatfield’s employment law group is busy analyzing these new laws and is ready to help you understand and implement them.
