Updates for Mississippi Dealers

Mississippi’s New Car and Truck Dealerships Are Open for Business. 

New car dealerships are essential in the transportation needs of Mississippi’s citizens, not only in selling new and used vehicles but also providing essential service, parts, warranty repairs, and correcting safety recalls.  Without a car or truck, practically every Mississippian would face extreme circumstances of not being able to get needed healthcare, go to work, or shop for groceries and other essential household items.

MADA sent a letter to Governor Tate Reeves requesting dealerships be allowed to stay open should he declare non-essential businesses to close.  

Employee Issues

MADA’s labor and employment counsel partner, Fisher Phillips, has assembled a cross-disciplinary taskforce of attorneys across the country to address the many employment-related issues facing employers in the wake of the COVID-19 coronavirus. The COVID-19 Taskforce has created a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document, which has been continually updated since first published on March 3 and will continue to be updated as events warrant. If you have any further questions, please contact Steve Cupp (scupp@fisherphillips.com) or Jaklyn Wrigley (jwrigley@fisherphillips.com) at 228-822-1440.
