The Connecticut Law Tribune interviewed top attorneys, including Day Pitney Partner and Executive Board Member Glenn Dowd, about Big Law continuing to come up with new safety protocols and procedures in how to safely deal with opening its offices.
In the article, "How Big Law Opened Safely and Addressed Child Care Needs of Its Attorneys," Dowd explains that Day Pitney has taken its cue from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's three-phase approach with Phase 3 being a resumption of work at the workplace.
The article also discussed the need to consider factors such as child care needs for working parents. Dowd explains, "you need to be cognizant of the needs of working parents at this time … In addition to all of the time and energy of being a lawyer and practicing at a high level, you also have to be a parent and a teacher. It has put a lot our attorneys in a real stressful situation." "We value our working parents as they are a critical part of our workforce, and we will help them though this unusual period," said Dowd
