Paula Williams, OU Law alumna (’11) and employment lawyer at GableGotwals, shares how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted her practice and her clients.
“It’s been tough,” said Williams. “I’m not a healthcare worker, I’m not on those kinds of frontlines, but in many ways I feel like I am on the frontlines with employers making some really tough decisions to try to insulate those businesses so that they can make it through this recession and still have jobs for employees later.”
Williams encourages employers to first check the Department of Labor’s website when looking for answers to their questions.
She also shared a heartfelt message for OU Law’s Class of 2020.
“So, as someone who is experiencing their second recession in my adult life…this is a paragraph in your story,” said Williams. “This is not going to define your story forever. It is the start. It is not the beginning, middle and end…You’re going to look back and tell people what things were like when you were starting to practice during coronavirus.”
