David A. Lawrence, Quoted

David A. Lawrence, a shareholder of the Firm, was recently quoted in an article for Forbes, “Unemployment Benefits By Executive Order: Don’t Expect the Extra $400 Any Time Soon.” The article focuses on one of the Executive Orders issued by President Trump on August 8, 2020, which will supplement unemployment benefits by $400/week. Mr. Lawrence noted that each state must agree to participate in the program to receive the federal funding. In light of a statement issued by Governor Whitmer on August 9, 2020, Mr. Lawrence says “it seems Michigan will not agree to the cost-sharing aspect of the program, so the extra benefits will not be provided in Michigan.” Mr. Lawrence has issued a series of “Critical Notices to Employers” addressing the PPP, the Governor’s Executive Orders and other COVID-19 issues, all which are available on the Firm’s website under “COVID 19 Resources”. Mr. Lawrence focuses his practice in the areas of litigation and dispute resolution, employment and labor and business and corporate.
