Taft attorney Nadia Lampton was quoted in the April 27 edition of the Dayton Daily News after participating in a round table discussion with local business leaders and entrepreneurs last week. The discussion centered on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the Dayton economy. Lampton shared some of the concerns her clients have as they ask employees to return to the workplace. The CARES Act has added $600 per week in unemployment benefits which could create a disincentive for workers to return to their former jobs quickly. "One of the motivating factors is that they make more money with unemployment benefits. That's an issue employers are already facing. Many of my clients are already dealing with that, and I think they'll continue to deal with that," Lampton said.
Lampton advises business owners and management in all aspects of labor and employment, including employee hiring and termination, employment agreements, handbooks and personnel policies, wrongful discharge defense, workplace investigations, harassment, discrimination, wage-hour and regulatory compliance, collective bargaining, OSHA, EEOC and NLRB proceedings, non-compete litigation and federal and state court litigation. Lampton has garnered an extensive and successful track record assisting clients in the construction, industrial manufacturing, healthcare, media and entertainment and technology industries.
