So yesterday’s post was about being a Miami Hurricane. Today’s? A real-life hurricane/tropical storm (Henri) is making it’s way to Southern New England.
It’s impact here in Connecticut is still very much up in the air as of midday Friday but for employers, this is still another challenge to have to manage.
Thankfully (or not, as some of you remember), we’ve had experience in this area before and so rather than write something entirely new, I’m going to highlight some prior posts that should provide some guidance on the items to think about during this next tropical storm.

Over the next few days, keeping employees safe and keeping your operations going will be imperative. Trying to do this in the face of an increasing surge (again) in the pandemic is something none of us have dealt with before. Most of the legal issues can wait but make sure you’re not doing anything crazy either.
Stay safe everyone.
