K&L Gates LLP is selected for a 2021 NLR Go-To Thought Leadership Award for their coverage of the varying rules and regulations related to COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave. The article, “COVID-19: California Extends COVID-19 Supplement Paid Sick Leave and Includes Vaccinations” authored by Eugene C. Ryu and Gregory T. Lewis was one of the firm's most-read articles, demonstrating their expertise on employment law matters stemming from the pandemic.  Given the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 for employers and employees alike, NLR appreciates the authors' thoughtful analysis of California's sick leave and vaccination policies.
