What Connecticut Employees Need to Know About COVID-19

Partner Nina Pirrotti Recently Appeared on NBC Connecticut to Discuss the Great Resignation

Jan 27 2022

Garrison, Levin-Epstein, Fitzgerald & Pirrotti, P.C. Partner Nina Pirrotti appeared on NBC Connecticut with Dan Corcoran on January 27th to discuss the continuing Great Resignation. Nina has also appeared on NBC Connecticut to discuss the Great Resignation in the past. You can watch the full segment here

The Great Resignation has been prevalent throughout much of the pandemic. While it seemed to be slowing down for a brief period, the number of Connecticut employees leaving their jobs rose to 49,000 in November. When asked why so many people are choosing to leave their jobs, Nina responded, “I think this phenomenon can be summarized by a single word, and that word is ‘opportunity’. And those opportunities have only increased since we last spoke. As the job market continues to have a glut of available jobs open, employees are going to be seeking out those jobs and looking for greener pastures. And this phenomenon will continue as long as that current state of the economy continues.”

However, while Nina states that there are opportunities available for many employees today, these aren’t always available to everyone. Nina warned that older employees in the workplace may not have access to the same opportunities that are available to younger employees.

Nina also provided some advice to employers worried about the Great Resignation, saying “I think employers should be thinking about what they can do to make that workplace as fulfilling as possible so that the employee won’t even think about leaving. And you know what? Part of that is just this intangible feeling that an employee gets that they are an integral part of the team, that their employer really genuinely cares about them as an individual, not a cog in a wheel, not a number of their workforce – someone who really just cares about them as individuals.”

    Client Experiences

    During a very difficult employment situation, I was referred to Joe Garrison. Recognizing the volatile and time sensitive nature of my employment situation, Mr. Garrison met with me immediately (on the weekend no less). He listened to the details of my case, was able to think through possible creative solutions to offer the employer, and was responsive to my myriad of questions. He understood my concerns about litigation versus settlement, and he worked to find the best resolution possible. I am grateful to have had his support at a very difficult time. —J.C., New Haven, CT

    Ethan Levin-Epstein represented me during a most painful and challenging crisis in my personal and professional life. Seeing me within 24 hours of being referred, his support and advocacy, wisdom and clarity not only resulted in a favorable negotiated outcome for me and for my family, but gave me peace of mind and the courage to recover. I am very grateful to have met Ethan and his team and would refer anyone in need to this haven. — C.L., Guilford, CT

    You will never meet a more knowledgeable and compassionate professional than Steve Fitzgerald. My employment situation was very complex, and Attorney Fitzgerald kept me focused while remaining extremely adept and “thinking on his feet.” Should the need present itself again, I would never seek anyone else’s counsel regarding employment issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough. — J.R., New Haven, CT

    Nina Pirrotti provided outstanding legal advice and was trustworthy, dependable, and responsive. From the start, I was confident that her knowledge and experience would obtain favorable results. On a more personal note, I enjoyed working with her and her staff and felt I was included in every part of the process. The dedication, concern, and interest in me as a client was greatly appreciated, and Nina has earned my highest recommendation. — J.H., Monroe, CT

    I recently found myself in need of a lawyer in handling a dispute with my former employer. I was fortunate to retain Josh Goodbaum as my legal counsel. His legal skills knowledge and professionalism shone through in every step of the process resulting in a very positive result. I highly recommend Josh if you find yourself in need of legal counsel. — S.R., Guilford, CT

    When I go to a lawyer for advice, I am usually anxious, particularly the first meeting. Amanda DeMatteis was clear in describing my options and immediately set me at ease. Realistic assessment is important, and Amanda was clear as to how to set up the case and the direction she felt we should go. I had total confidence in her abilities and knew I was being well represented against a large corporation. More importantly, we were successful! —N.M., Haddam, CT
