WEBINARS "Business Survival, Coronavirus and Your Obligations Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)" and “UPDATE: Families First Coronavirus Response Act and CARES Act”
As many of you know, The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA; “The Act”) was signed into law on March 18, 2020. The Act went into effect on April 1, 2020 and requires all employers with less than 500 employees to provide additional Paid Time Off to employees affected by COVID-19.
The two provisions in the Act that will be particularly impactful to you, our clients are:
Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act Expansion
Emergency Paid Sick Leave
We want you to have all the information you need to understand and implement these policies in your business. We will also be covering important alternative strategies for reducing your employee force, even temporarily, and potentially avoiding layoffs.
Over the past few weeks, it's clear we are all sorting through the significant affects the Covid-19 virus is having on our businesses. We understand you are seeking guidance on doing what is right by your employees, what your legal obligations are and how to stay in business. We have developed detailed guidance on how these mandated provisions will impact you and want to address all your questions. As a result, HR Choice, in partnership with Chuck Passaglia our partner from Employment Law Solutions, hosted two webinar sessions “Business Survival: Coronavirus and Your Obligations Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)” and a subsequent “UPDATE: Families First Coronavirus Response Act and CARES Act”
