Our COVID-19 Practice Areas

Whether you are working from home, reporting to your workplace as an essential employee, or trying to survive temporary layoffs, our Memphis COVID-19 employment lawyers have you covered.

Explore our practice areas below:

ADA Reasonable Accommodation

Can you work from home? What should you do about personal protective equipment (PPE)? Find the answers to these questions and more on our COVID-19 reasonable accommodations page.

In general, remember that the COVID-19 crisis should not interfere with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and all employees should be treated fairly, even in these uncertain times.

Family and Medical Leave

Before the pandemic, some employees were entitled to 12 workweeks of unpaid medical and family leave in certain situations outlined in the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Now, most workers are eligible for 2 weeks of paid sick time and up to 12 weeks to care for children thanks to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

To learn more about the FFCRA and your rights, visit our family and medical leave page or read our blog about the FFCRA.

Whistleblower Complaints

Workplace safety is more important than ever before. If your employer is not taking the appropriate precautions to protect its workers and customers from COVID-19, you have every right to speak up.

When retaliation occurs, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is in charge of protecting you, so long as you file a whistleblower complaint. Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people file whistleblower complaints each day, however, so you may need an attorney to stand by your side and help protect your rights in the meantime.

Federal unemployment rates have hit a 90-year high. Still, unemployment insurance exists to protect workers in unexpected situations just like this one.

If your unemployment claim is denied, you can turn to our firm for help. You should also discuss your claim with us if you were fired, as you may have been wrongfully terminated as a result of disability discrimination, retaliation, or another employment law concern.
