Employment lawyers from Luchansky Law help guide employees through COVID-19 confusion

Towson, Maryland – 2/15/2021: The spread of the COVID-19 virus has been extremely deadly and disorienting for a lot of modern-day structures. People all over the country have been struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy while dealing with a global pandemic. Many have attempted to adjust their way of life to continue surviving while still meeting their personal and professional commitments. For the period of this pandemic, the Government of Maryland has updated work and labor laws pertaining to the quarantine and for employees who have contracted the virus.
The additions to the labor laws aim to provide relief to everyday workers and employees in the case of them or their loved ones contracting the disease or if they are placed under quarantine. Luchansky Law is helping its clients ensure that these measures are implemented as proper worker rights. With many people unaware of these updates and what they are expected to do from a legal standpoint, the Lawyers at Luchansky Law are working to ensure corporate malpractice and employee exploitation does not occur.
A spokesperson from the law firm stated, “The pandemic has been extremely deadly with hundreds of thousands affected, many of whom have had their lives claimed by it. The laws were implemented to protect the average person from contracting the virus and to provide them with relief if they do contract it. We are making sure people are aware of these rights and can enact them when necessary.”
The enhanced employee protection laws ensure that employees aren’t forced to come in to work if they’ve contracted the virus and if their loved ones have contracted the virus. They’re entitled to a minimum of two weeks of paid leave, and these leaves can’t come out of the employee’s pool of sick leaves. Luchansky Law is helping ensure that employees don’t face any form of retaliation for using these laws to safeguard themselves.
