Murphy, Hesse, Toomey and Lehane Partner has Virtual Chat South Shore Chamber President and Members

 

Katherine A. Hesse, a partner with Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane, LLP, recently presented a virtual chat with Peter Forman, president of South Shore Chamber. The members heard from Katherine on how MHTL is adjusting in this unchartered territory. The virtual chat also allowed members to ask their pressing questions on navigating this pandemic and the reopening process.

 

 

Katherine Hesse focused on the legal environment surrounding reopening Massachusetts, pointing out the legal requirements all employers must comply with, as laid out in Governor Baker’s Four-Phase approach. During the chat, attorney Hesse gave practical guidance for businesses about forming a team that would consist of an attorney, accountant, banker, insurance broker and the chamber to assist with navigating these uncertain times. This team would help employers comply with the MA mandates, they can incorporate requirements for creating a safe workplace, maintaining a harassment-free workplace, and other regulatory provisions, into employee communications and required employee training.
