HR Works COVID-19 Update: FFCRA Lawsuits Begin Hitting the Courts

When the pandemic first hit the United States, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was passed to help protect American citizens. The FFCRA has been in effect for some time since then, and employment lawsuits have begun hitting the courts. In this episode, we are going to go over some of the hot-spots surrounding the FFCRA with returning guest Maggie Spell, partner at the New Orleans location 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.

Please join us next Friday when we’ll be releasing another episode where Maggie and I get deeper into one of the most common types of suits that have arisen: retaliation suits.
