Coronavirus (COVID-19) Essentials for the Municipal Employer


2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Over the past week, cases of COVID-19 have skyrocketed in Connecticut. The number of positive cases is estimated to be only a small fraction of those actually infected. As federal, state and local officials move to control the virus and stem its spread, employers are being met with difficult decisions regarding their workforces. For municipal employers, who provide essential and sometime lifesaving services to the community, choices can be particularly hard and confusing. Moreover, multiple employment laws are implicated, including the new Family First Coronavirus Assistance Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as well as Employee Assistance Programs, onsite clinics, and Telemedicine.

Join FordHarrison attorneys Johanna Zelman and Michael Harrington as they discuss the main issues municipal employers are facing amid the COVID-19 pandemic and best practices to help your organization mitigate the associated employment law risks.


  • Learn about creating prioritized plans for grant-funded projects
  • Learn about preparation you can do to set yourself up for success prior to a funding announcement 
  • Learn about making your application more compelling to reviewers
