Katz Banks Kumin partner Alexis Ronickher spoke at a MWELA CLE, “Contagious Enthusiasm: Employment Protections for COVID Whistleblowers.”
As businesses begin to reopen across the country and in the Washington D.C. area, employees – many of whom are low-wage service workers – will likely have to work under unsafe conditions while there is still the possibility of catching an incurable and potentially fatal virus.

The presentation included a Q&A for attorneys, practitioners, and employers, and a discussion on different protections for public and private employees.
