Alice Jump Quoted in Law360 Article “Legal Pitfalls Loom for Employers Reopening Post-Pandemic”

RPJ Partner Alice K. Jump was quoted Law360‘s April 22 article entitled, “Legal Pitfalls Loom for Employers Reopening Post-Pandemic.” The article was published on Law360‘s website, and as the lead story in its Employment and Corporate newsletter, and covers the legal dangers and logistical challenges faced by employers as states begin to reopen their economies and businesses look to resume operations. 

Ms. Jump highlighted, among several key issues, the importance of transparency and rationality in hiring and onboarding processes. “I think the issue is to try and keep your eye on the non-discrimination ball, if you will,” Ms. Jump noted. “Make sure you’re [re-hiring and onboarding] in a way that’s not going to give rise to people claiming that you’re doing it for not-legitimate and discriminatory reasons.”
