HR Works COVID-19 Update: DOL Clarifications and Reaffirmations on FFCRA

In this episode, we take a look at some of the DOL’s revisions and reaffirmations of the original FFCRA regulations. That includes clarifications around leave for medical professionals, intermittent leave, and more. And we have with us a familiar voice: attorney Maggie Spell of Jones Walker.

Maggie focuses her practice on cases brought under federal, state, and local employment laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. She regularly offers wage and hour compliance advice and has represented employers in numerous Fair Labor Standards Act collective actions and state-law wage and hour class actions.

Maggie’s litigation experience also includes defending employers in breach of contract and employment-related tort claims. She regularly defends employers and management before state and federal courts throughout the country at the trial and appellate levels, as well as before administrative bodies such as the US Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and similar state agencies.
