Employees Who Just Want To LeaveApril 30, 2020 – Article
Karina Sterman, a partner in Greenberg Glusker’s Employment Law Group, has contributed the article, "Employees Who Just Want To Leave," about two new leaves available to employees—the Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and the Expanded Family Medical Leave Act (EFMLA)—to the April/May 2020 edition of the Entertainment Human Resources Network and Los Angeles Advertising Human Resources Professionals newsletters.
