FEAT Virtual Speaker Series #6: COVID-19 Update on the FFCRA, CARES, Arizona PSL and FMLA, with Attorneys Joe Kroeger and Audrey Chastain of Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.

The past seven months have been unprecedented as employers and employees alike adapt to the changing work environment and evolving regulatory responses to the COVID pandemic.  Complicating this business environment are interactions between complex and interconnected multi-jurisdictional laws and regulations whose compliance obligations were nuanced long before the expansive and fast-tracked policy responses to COVID were deployed.  Now more than ever, understanding your organization’s compliance obligations is of critical importance.

Join FEAT, Snell & Wilmer Managing Partner Joe Kroeger, and attorney Audrey Chastain for a conversation on the intersections between sweeping COVID-specific legislation like the FFCRA and CARES Acts and existing Arizona state and Federal legislation including the recent Paid Sick Leave (PSL), COBRA and the FMLA.  CPE credit is available for this event.
