April 1 has always just been April Fool’s Day. But now, if you’re a small or medium-sized business owner, it has taken on a whole new meaning. What are your requirements with this Coronavirus pandemic concerning your employees if they’re affected by this disease? On the show today, we have Celia Collins, an Employment Law Attorney with Johnston Adams LLC in Mobile, Alabama. She’s in the studio today to help us understand this constantly changing and legal labyrinth for employers and what they can do for their employees to manage unemployment and sick leave. We’re talking what’s your responsibility (and liabilities) to your employees under the Coronavirus Paid Sick Leave Act and the Extended Family Relief Act. You’re going to want to hear this show.
