COVID-19 Employment Litigation Tracker And Alerts

This COVID-19 Employment Litigation Tracker includes cases that were a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and are traditional employee vs. employer cases - both individual plaintiff and class actions. This should be considered a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, dataset.

The Cases by Population tab includes a visual representation of the number of cases filed per one million residents in the state. State population data was determined using the most recent census data available.

The industry and company size tables and graphs were developed using the primary defendant’s information when the case involves multiple defendants. Company size information is provided where the number of employees is available via public resources.

For substantive inquiries about the data, please contact a team member of the COVID-19 Taskforce or your Fisher Phillips attorney. For media inquiries, please contact Meghan Warin or Jenna Gatski Einstein.
