The legal industry is going through a massive shift thanks to COVID-19, the new amendment to the U.S. Constitution that impacts the way we work and how we interact with clients. This post will explain what COVID-19 is, why it’s so important, and how this new law will impact you as a professional within the legal field.

COVID-19 is here and it’s time for legal professionals to get their bearings. The impact of this legislation will be felt across all areas of the legal industry, but especially in corporate law, where there are still many questions about how exactly COVID-19 will affect companies and their employees.
Say’s Jeremy Schulman, If you want your company to be prepared for what’s coming down the pipeline in terms of COVID-19 compliance, it’s important that you have someone on hand who knows what they’re doing when it comes to navigating uncharted territory–and with so much uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 right now, that person should probably be an attorney.
Even if your organization isn’t directly affected by COVID-19 (yet), having a plan in place can help ensure smooth sailing when change comes knocking at your door–whether or not those changes happen because of COVID-19 specifically.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19, also known as the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act of 2020, was passed by Congress and signed into law on July 1, 2020. It affects all companies in the United States with more than 50 employees.
The act requires that companies provide equal pay for equal work regardless of gender or race (or ethnicity). It also prohibits retaliation against employees who discuss their salaries with co-workers at other companies or who ask their employers why they’re paid less than others doing similar work.
Why is COVID-19 so important?
COVID-19 is a change to the way legal professionals can use data about their clients. It impacts the way that all attorneys, paralegals and other legal staff work with their clients’ data and information.
When does COVID-19 go into effect?
COVID-19 goes into effect on April 1, 2020. The date is also the date that COVID-19 becomes effective for all contracts and agreements.
