Host Riley Moyer invites guests Katheryn Bradley and Shirley Lou-Magnuson to share tools and advice with employers studying vacation and accommodation obligations for a compliant, well-managed workforce. Katheryn and Shirley are attorneys who serve on our firm’s labor and employment team.

With the patchwork of federal, state and local vacation laws to be administered in addition to the new paid family and sick leave programs, many employers were already in an uproar early in 2020. But the pandemic hit and quarantine orders followed, and employers faced new challenges when it came to teleworking and managing employees with no childcare available.

Congress responded with emergency legislation mandating paid vacation for COVID-19-related illness and childcare purposes. Washington Governor Inslee also issued proclamations requiring housing for high-risk employees. While employees explore a variety of vacation and housing options to manage their lives during the pandemic, many managers and HR professionals are feeling overwhelmed.

This episode is from a presentation originally taped on October 15, 2020.
