Overview

As the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to unfold, governments and businesses are being adversely affected. Employers must prepare to address the threat as it relates to the health, safety, and well-being of their workforce and to the continued success of their businesses.

Boyce Law Firm has initiated and formed its COVID-19 Response Team to serve as a resource for our clients and our community. We are helping guide clients on a wide range of critical topics that impact their businesses, including new federal and state legislation. Please reach out to our Response Team with any questions or concerns you may have. We are here to assist our clients as we all manage through this difficult time.

We have compiled links to important resources to help answer some of the most common questions. We are monitoring and updating our information regularly as the situation evolves.
