COVID-19 has brought federal unemployment numbers to a record high. With so many people in need of help, the complex system has become backlogged and seemingly impermeable. This session welcomes labor and employment lawyer Peter Ennis to cover the basics and best practices when it comes to navigating the Pennsylvania unemployment system. In addition the session will hold space to address specific questions from attendees.
For over 30 years, Peter Ennis has advised clients on difficult and complex employment law matters, advocated on his clients’ behalf, and, when needed, litigated to represent their interests. He provides advice on virtually every employment decision, including hiring and firing employees; compensation and compliance with the FLSA and state wage and hour laws; reasonable accommodations under Title VII and the Americans with Disabilities Act and comparable state laws; succession planning and reductions-in-force; and complying with laws governing leaves of absence, including the FMLA and USERRA. Peter represents employers before state and federal courts and agencies involving such claims as sexual harassment, race, sex, age, and disability discrimination; wrongful discharge; breaches of covenants not to compete; cases arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act and ERISA; and various types of injunction proceedings. He has also handled many labor arbitrations and unfair labor practice charges involving a broad range of contract interpretation and disciplinary issues, including discharges arising from drug and alcohol related offenses, theft, fraud, insubordination, and absenteeism.
