Calabrese Jeffrey 2014 047 HSE Roc 2661WebReadyJeffrey J. Calabrese, partner and chair of the Labor and Employment practice group, was featured in a recent Rochester Business Journal article titled, “Attorneys predict employment litigation cases will gain traction post-pandemic.” In the article, Jeff describes the possibility of a steep increase in employment litigation due to a backlog of cases that were in the works pre-COVID and put on-hold when the pandemic hit, as well as COVID-related claims and a charged political environment that could spill into the workplace.

“There are a number of challenges now that employers may not have had to focus on over the past year,” Jeff said. “Having more people back in the office after spending nearly a year working remotely could increase the chances of litigation, such as discrimination claims, for instance, since people are now back to being face-to-face in an office.” Jeff also recommends employers review their rules and policies with managers and supervisors to get everyone up to speed after an unusual year.
