Day Pitney Employment and Labor Partner Glenn Dowd and Healthcare Partner and Chair Susan Huntington are featured in the Hartford Business Journal article titled, "Legal Experts: COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Easing; Hybrid Work Here to Stay."
Dowd commented, "There's the Great Resignation, a pandemic and a shortage of workers all kind of converging at the same time. Employers have been struggling to come up with the right mix of things." He added, "Executives are worried about the 'culture' they could be losing by going fully remote."
Huntington added, "We are seeing a recognition that the culture's not the same and the level of training isn't the same. There is a price to pay with the remote model, and employers haven't figured out how to address those gaps effectively."
Chair of Day Pitney's Employment and Labor Practice Heather Brochin and Senior Associate Jim Leva authored an article titled, "New Jersey Takes Aim at Restrictive Covenants," for the New Jersey Law Journal's Employment Law Special Section.
