COVID-19 Response Team - Resources and Updates

The response to COVID-19 has state and federal authorities making swift and unprecedented changes to current laws, drafting new laws and making exceptions everywhere in between. This leaves employers, business leaders and carriers scrambling. Thompson Coe’s COVID-19 Response Team is here to guide businesses, employers and carriers through understanding their obligations and strategies during this uncertain time, as well as keeping them informed of the most recent developments. We have compiled a catalog of resources including news alerts, recorded webinars, issues for consideration, and key attorney contacts.
