Phillip Kitzer Presents on COVID-19 Employment Issues to Minnesota Lawyers
On December 8, 2020, Phillip Kitzer presented “COVID-19: A Plaintiffs’ Employment Attorney’s Perspective” to the Minnesota chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association along with Elizabeth Binczik, attorney at Fabian May & Anderson, PLLP.
The program covered a variety of employment issues that arise for Minnesota employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether working from home under a stay-at-home order or caring for a child when school is closed, the pandemic has affected nearly every employee in the state. Phillip and Elizabeth discussed various laws that apply to employers during this time through programs such as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”), but also how employer bias and discrimination related to COVID-19 can violate employee protection laws.
If you feel you have experienced discrimination or retaliation at work related to COVID-19, our attorneys at Kitzer Rochel are here to help. We advocate on behalf of employees facing discrimination, retaliation, and whistleblower issues in the workplace.
