Cincinnati Bar Association Hosting Facebook Live Answer Sessions for Common COVID-19 Legal Questions

The Cincinnati Bar Association  is hosting a series of informational sessions for those who may have legal questions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

These 30-minute Facebook Live panels will answer pre-selected questions, submitted by the public. A release from the CBA says, “Questions related to the topics of labor and employment, landlord-tenant relations and estate planning/probate will be accepted and addressed.”

Some sample questions include:

  • What does ‘furlough’ mean?
  • I’ve been furloughed. What are my options for paying rent?
  • As a tenant/landlord, what are my rights under the CARES Act?
  • What can I do/who can I contact if I don’t feel like my workplace is safe?
  • My relative is ill and needs a will — can that be done remotely/virtually? What’s that process?

The first panel — held at 4 p.m. Monday, May 18 — will tackle estate planning and probate. The deadline to submit questions is 5 p.m. Friday, May 16.

Submit your questions to [email protected]. The CBA says submissions will be reviewed by attorney panels for inclusion.
