COVID-19 Legal Issues for Small Businesses

Online • Fairfield | Westchester • August 5, 2020

This webinar will address "hot button" employment and contract law issues in the wake of COVID-19.

Wednesday, August 5, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT

If you are a small business owner and have asked yourself any of the following questions lately, this lunch & learn is meant for you!!

  • How do I talk to my employees about the COVID-19 pandemic in an empathetic way without intruding on their privacy or violating any laws?
  • What options do I have if mandatory lock-downs have caused my business to suffer – can I make job cuts in order to lower my labor-related operating expenses?
  • What new laws related to COVID-19 have been enacted, and how will those laws help my struggling business?
  • Help! I can’t meet my obligations under some of my contracts! What can I do to avoid breaching the contracts and potential litigation?

During this webinar, Kristen Centre, an experienced corporate law attorney and the new the Co-Chapter Lead and President of the Ellevate Fairfield/Westchester chapter, will talk about the popular and pressing employment and contract law issues related to COVID-19 that have been keeping her and her clients up at night. 

Hope you are able to join us for this lively and informative discussion! See you there!

on her own journey. She’s independent by nature and entrepreneurial at her core. She’s curious and determined, and she’s got this idea she has to put into the world.

She’s a freelance designer and remote corporate worker. She’s got funding for her startup and is writing a book. She loves what she does, but she craves a special work space of her own (other than the home office or local coffee shop).

She seeks out inspiration and always shows up. She needs access to valuable resources, and she thrives around women, who, like her, are on fire about what they do.
