  • Time: 6:30pm – 7:30pm
  • Location: Montgomery County Medical Society Webinar

David Shapiro and Jim Hammerschmidt presented a webinar through the Montgomery County Medical Society on COVID-19 Staffing on Tuesday, August 25, 2020. 

As our social and legal environments continue to change in response to COVID-19, physicians, in particular, are facing a number of complicated and difficult employee management issues. What are the legal issues surrounding hiring, firing, furloughing, and more during the pandemic and how might that interact with relief fund forgiveness? If an employee engages in high exposure activity outside the workplace, what options does the employer have?

This Q&A will be based on attendee submitted questions, and will feature David Shapiro and Jim Hammerschmidt of The Law Firm of Paley Rothman, based in Bethesda. Jim and David have years of experience working with healthcare practices and providers, and employers in general, and will offer their knowledge and expertise to physician attendees navigating COVID-19-related laws and business issues.
