Arthur Yermash is a partner at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP. A corporate lawyer, Yermash provides practical, business-focused guidance to clients. Since launching his career at CMM over a decade ago, Yermash has directly supported the general counsel and full legal and business teams for a national retailer, serving as their go-to resource and primary outside counsel on an extraordinarily wide range of business and employment matters.
He has also represented Long Island and NYC companies in countless business-related matters and transactions from the routine to the complex, with a particular emphasis on guiding businesses through labor and employment issues from an employer perspective.
It has become exceedingly challenging for employers to comply with many different COVID-19 requirements and guidelines, Yermash said.
“The rules and requirements are changing at an unprecedented pace, creating difficulties for business decisionmakers to keep up with seemingly weekly changes,” he said. “The CDC and federal OSHA are focused on vaccination requirements, masks, and quarantine guidelines. State and city leaders are focused on paid sick leave, unpaid sick leave, quarantine leave, HERO Act, testing, and more.”
“A workforce is the backbone of any business and making sure people are able to get their jobs done safely and efficiently is vital for every business.,” Yermash noted. “As we head into 2022, it is as important as ever to maintain policies that fit the unique needs of each business. At the same time, employers must stay vigilant regarding the ever-changing rules and guidelines to maintain a safe and productive workplace.”
Yermash also chairs the firm’s Cannabis Law practice group, providing critical guidance for cannabis businesses, entrepreneurs, and service providers on a wide range of matters in this emerging market.
