Furloughs or layoffs? To test or not to test? Work from home or return to the office?

These are some of the many quandaries employers face as they manage COVID-19 pandemic-related disruptions for the weeks and months to come.

Ward and Smith's Labor and Employment team is working with clients daily on the issues they face and providing advice on how to navigate them legally, effectively, and compassionately.
