In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of thousands of valuable and industrious employees have been unceremoniously ejected from the workforce. Notwithstanding a dire need for employment, countless workers have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. With an uncertain future and a shaky economy, employers have made preemptive strikes in an effort to salvage businesses and conserve costs. The average working men and women have been an unfortunate casualty in the aftermath of the Coronavirus. The Law Firm of Fenters Ward understands that termination of long-time employees during COVID-19 may not be right, and often times may involve complex legal ramifications. The attorneys at the Law Firm of Fenters Ward are working hard to help the unemployed victims of this crisis.
Employment law can be a complex and difficult road to maneuver, and oftentimes neither employers nor employees have a firm grasp on the law and its meaning. This results in employers terminating employees in good standing under questionable circumstances, and in employees who are left with questions and frustration. Most often, the violations that are overlooked concerning employment termination are those involving illegal wage cases. Failure to pay overtime is a common violation, as is a failure to pay the correct rate of overtime, and these are circumstances that have been especially prevalent in cases involving termination during COVID-19.
