Carl Bosland’s COVID-19 AND FEDERAL SECTOR LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT LAW is an extraordinarily comprehensive analysis of the U.S. federal government’s response, as employer of more than four million people, to the COVID-19 pandemic. This book covers such topics as remote work, employee leave, vaccination requirements, and the impact of COVID-19 on discrimination and other labor and employment laws. It will be invaluable for federal agency leaders, policymakers, and lawyers currently dealing with the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic or preparing for the inevitable next calamity.
