Published on

May 14, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, some Pennsylvania counties stated that they will defy the Governor’s stay-at-home order and transition from the “red phase” to the “yellow phase.” What potential legal issues should non-life-sustaining business owners and employers be aware of if they decide to re-open their business in defiance of this order? This webinar, presented on May 14 by Barley Snyder, addresses these issues. Attorney Marty Siegel, Partner Jill Sebest Welch and attorney Lindsey Cook discussed the potential risks you could be exposing your business to in the areas of public health & safety, employment and insurance & risk management.
