Workplace Perspective – an employment law podcast produced by SAFFIRE LEGAL, PC

Episode #41 – Special COVID-19 Workplace Perspective: FAQ With Neil Pedersen, Esq.

Neil Pedersen, Esq.

Today’s guest is attorney Neil Pedersen, Founder and Principal Attorney at Pedersen Law. SAFFIRE LEGAL PC’s founder and principal attorney Teresa McQueen and Neil provide responses to some FAQs regarding COVID-19 and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act’s (FFCRA) Emergency Family Medical Leave Response and Emergency Paid Sick Leave Acts.  Neil also shares his thoughts and experiences as a small business owner in transitioning his ‘brick and morter’ law practice to a functioning remote workforce. 

Designated as a world-wide pandemic in early March, the effects of COVID-19 are touching all of our lives with far reaching implications as the edges of our personal and professional lives begin to blend together; a direct result of ‘shelter in-place’ orders and the shuttering non-essential workplaces. Teresa and Neil provide employee and employer perspectives regarding leave, layoffs and sick pay provisions of the FFCRA.  

 

Workplace Perspective is a regular podcast series for employers and employees focusing on education, training, and the law to help organizations of all sizes develop and maintain successful employer / employee relationships.

Shortly California’s Governor Gavin Newsom’s March 19, 2020 stay at home order was issued we at Workplace Perspective began preparing a series of COVID-19 related episodes. Our goal: To share some real stories from real people who are, like you our listeners, dealing with this novel and ever changing environment. We hope you find our guests stories inspirational, affirming and encouraging. 

Rest assured that we at Workplace Perspective, in compliance with California’s shelter in-place order, are broadcasting for the foreseeable future from our make-shift home studios. We thank you for your continued support!
