COVID-19 concerns have come in waves for many businesses. The first wave was protecting the health and safety of employees and others; the second was ensuring compliance with myriad laws impacted by, and created to address, COVID-19; and the third wave, which is just starting to form and will crest over the coming months, is litigation over these various compliance obligations.
With every legal obligation comes the consequence of noncompliance-litigation. Individuals will not be shy about filing lawsuits, especially when so many are unemployed and have little to lose (and a lot to gain) by suing.
