Chicago Lawyer Talks to Bloomberg Law about Emerging Trends in COVID-19 Employment Litigation


In an interview with Bloomberg Law, Jessica Causgrove discusses emerging trends in COVID-19 employment litigation with a focus on the potential impact of Chicago’s new anti-retaliation ordinance. Jessica explains that the city’s ordinance “specifically barred employers from firing workers who take time off work to follow quarantine or other health-related orders during the pandemic, but there’s also an implied bar on retaliating against workers who raise safety concerns related to the virus.” She adds that that employers are encouraged to comply with the ordinance because if they don’t they may face “stiff penalties, [of] up to three times lost wages.”
