The Chester County COVID-19 Business Task Force will host the sixth in a series of free webinars on Thursday July 2nd, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. The webinar will feature Brian D. Boreman, head of Employment Law practice and co-chair of the litigation department at Unruh, Turner, Burke & Frees. To join the webinar, go to https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87490767265?pwd=eWRUQlNZRlFUNkRlQzhpSjNYNlh4Zz09

The webinar will focus on the necessary steps businesses must take in order to avert litigation and avoid liability during these unprecedented times. Mr. Boreman will elaborate on employer’s obligations under laws such as the ADA, OSHA and Title VII, as well as others enacted to protect the rights of employees in the workplace.

“While it is unclear when we will return to ‘business as usual,’ what is clear is that understanding the law and developing pragmatic solutions to issues that will inevitably arise from COVID-19 will mitigate against unwelcomed litigation,” said Boreman.

Mr. Boreman will cover information relevant to reopening businesses of any scale and size. The information in the webinar will be a useful addition to any business currently navigating the many guidelines available. Understanding employment law will be crucial for businesses both during and long after the COVID-19 crisis.

As an attorney, Mr. Boreman frequently counsels employers on trade secret protection, wage and hour compliance, pre-employment screening, employee drug testing, implementation of employment and social media policies, and leave under the FMLA. He also has significant experience in litigating a variety of commercial and employment-related disputes on behalf of his clients that involve discrimination and wrongful discharge claims, enforcement of restrictive covenants, breach of employment contracts, wage and hour claims, protection against  dissemination of company trade secrets, and shareholder rights. Mr. Boreman also teaches Employment Law as an adjunct professor at Villanova University.

The webinar is free and will be hosted by Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline. It is backed by the County’s nine chambers of commerce, and other economic, education and government leaders—all members of the COVID-19 Business Task Force and its Restore Chester County initiative.

Slides and resources from previous webinars can be found at the recently launched Restore Chester County website. Through the site, businesses, organizations, and residents can confidently navigate through these materials and other reopening guidelines with both overall and industry-specific guidance relating to COVID-19.
