COVID-19 UPDATES & RESOURCES
Dear Valued Client,
We are continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and staying as informed and educated as possible during this ever-changing time.
Our team has been diligently reviewing all of the resources and guidance being offered on the subject and have pulled together the links below that we've found to be particularly helpful.
Please take a few minutes to review these links and the content within.
As you can imagine, we’ve had a number of calls and have been asked to provide guidance on handling a variety of employer/employee-related scenarios related to this workplace disruption. Please feel free to reach out as needed if you need any support working through your specific issues. We’re not seeing a “one-size fits all” solution and there is a great deal of confusion out there for employers - we are here to help.
We’ve engaged a panel of HR and legal experts and are committed to working with you to understand and support your unique business challenges, discuss available options, and to be your HR business partner through these trying times.
Be safe, be well, and as always, thank you for your trust in our guidance.
Susan and the team at HR Choice

WEBINAR "Business Survival, Coronavirus and Your Obligations Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)"
As many of you know, The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA; “The Act”) was signed into law on March 18, 2020. The Act will go into effect no later than April 2, 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 week with our clients it’s apparent we’re all sorting through the significant changes the Covid-19 virus is having and will have on your business. 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, will be hosting two webinar sessions “Business Survival: Coronavirus and Your Obligations Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)”.
These webinars will provide you an update on the FFCRA as well as options for supporting your employees during this difficult time.
