8:15  POST DISASTER Employment Issues!

Lakisha M. Kinsey-Sallis, Johnson Jackson, LLC, Tampa, Florida

A Category 4 hurricane just plowed through. Government employees have the same issues dealing with damage and disaster after a storm as the average citizen…Can I make them report to duty? What if they refuse? What if I have to close my doors to “non-essential” personnel? Do I have to continue to pay them? HELP!!! Although new to FPELRA, LaKisha Kinsey-Sallis comes highly recommended from Erin Jackson (long time speaker/presenter/and supporter of FPELRA). Don’t miss the kickoff of the “morning after the Mardi Gras party!”
