Save The Date – KZA Special Briefing On New Senate Bills
August 13, 2020
Date: August 25, 2020, 11:00 AM
Topic: Senate Bills 3 and 4
Please join Kamer Zucker Abbott partners Todd Creer and Jen Sarafina for a 30-minute special briefing on Senate Bills 3 and 4 enacted by the Nevada Legislature during the recent special session. SB 3 makes changes to Nevada’s unemployment statutes – some of which are retroactive to May 28, 2020. SB 4 places numerous COVID-19 related requirements and protocols upon “public accommodation facilities” and offers some employers immunity from civil actions for personal injury or death due to COVID-19 exposure.
We will discuss the expanded definition of “unemployed” adopted by Senate Bill 3, changes to the disqualification period, and the expansion of “suitable” reasons for refusing to work. We will review Senate Bill 4’s protocols for public accommodation facilities to limit the transmission of COVID-19, new requirements for testing and paid leave for employees of public accommodation facilities, and how and under what circumstances immunity from COVID-19 personal injury recoveries may be available to employers.
This special briefing is provided only to KZA clients and is free of charge. Registration information will be forthcoming. Continuing education credits will not be offered.
