This session also explores the application of existing employment laws to the current pandemic, including the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act (TUCA), the America with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN).
