The National Law Review selected von Briesen's COVID-19 Task Force as a Go-To Thought Leader for 2021 for the group’s coverage of COVID-19 vaccine mandates. As the coronavirus vaccine became widely available, many employers debated whether to require vaccines for their employees or if such mandates were legal. In particular, the group’s coverage of OSHA and CMS guidance on federal vaccine mandates provided must-read insights for employers navigating compliance with the rules. Authors who contributed insights into this area include John A. Rubin, Craig T. Papka, Robert J. Simandl and Audrey R. Merkel.
The National Law Review recognizes John A. Rubin as a Go-To Thought Leader for his regular coverage of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and COVID-19 updates from the Department of Labor (DOL). Mr. Rubin’s experience as a Field and Trial Attorney for the NLRB provides real-world insight to his thought leadership, and his articles distill NLRB decisions for employers into efficient, actionable insights. Concerning the DOL, his analysis of revisions to the FFCRA (Families First Coronavirus Response Act) rules including the healthcare provider exemption, the work availability requirement, and notice and documentation requirements under the EPSLA (Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act) provides employers needed guidance on how to update their leave policies to be compliant.
Ryan T. Siehr, a member of the Business Practice Group and the Health Law and Technology Law Section with von Briesen, was named a 2019 National Law Review Go-To Thought Leader for his analysis of Office of the Inspector General (OIG) actions and other healthcare industry investigations. He provides National Law Review readers with important information involving electronic healthcare records and compliance with the Department of Health and Human Services ("HHS") changing requirements.
