COVID-19 Legal Rights for Employees
You May Be Entitled to Legal Remedies
Many Colorado employees have been terminated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In some circumstances, these terminations give rise to legal remedies for employees. Lynn Feiger, Justin Plaskov, and their legal team provide legal consultations for employees terminated because of the pandemic.
Situations where employees may have legal remedies available for COVID-19 related terminations include:
- Employees who are terminated because they become ill from COVID-19;
- Employees who are denied leave when they or close family members require their care as a result of COVID-19; and
- Employees who are terminated because they oppose their employer’s refusal to keep employees reasonably safe from COVID-19.
COVID-19 has transformed workplaces around the globe, including many in Colorado. Thousands of workers across the state have lost their jobs as their workplaces have downsized or have temporarily or permanently closed because of the pandemic.
If you are one of those individuals impacted by COVID-19 at work, you may be entitled to legal recourse under federal, state, or common law.
