John H. Dannecker, a partner out of Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, recently commented on the impact of Stay-at-Home Orders in Orange and Osceola counties to Central Florida’s construction industry, in an article by the Orlando Business Journal.
The article details how construction related businesses have been deemed ‘essential,’ thus providing major relief to the roughly 90,000 Central Floridians who work in the construction industry and are not as restricted as other industries by the stay-at-home order, with some exceptions. In the piece, John comments on the need for construction businesses to forecast the needs that will arise as a result of the pandemic. In addition to industrial cleaning and inspection services, he also details the importance of managing workforces. Commenting on potential labor shortages in the future, John noted, “Having a secondary source of temporary labor may prove to be invaluable.”
