Nancy Inesta Talks about What Employers Can Do about Coronavirus Threat

News / March 3, 2020

Partner Nancy Inesta is extensively quoted in an article published March 3, 2020, by Corporate Counsel. In the article, “The COVID-19 Coronavirus Threat: How Can U.S. In-House Counsel Respond?,” Inesta says, “I have back-to-back client calls today for dealing with this issue. Employers want to know what to do. Employers have to work within current laws that may not necessarily give them unfettered flexibility to do what they would like to do, such as ask medical questions.” She also said, “I would advise employers right now to follow procedures to be sure that they are creative and generous with their leave policies” but cautioned that such procedures be documented so a new standard is not created.

Inesta chairs the firm task force on COVID-19.
