The Covid 19 virus floating in the background with the word Covid 19 overlayed on top

Organizations continue to struggle with “the new normal” with respect to operations and handling personnel issues in these unusual times. While the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act were created to provide economic relief to businesses and individuals impacted by COVID-19, there are many questions for those employers and HR professionals who are tasked with accessing resources and implementing benefits. Further, in anticipation of the Stay at Home Orders being lifted, what other obligations should employers be considering as we move forward?

Please join us for a free webinar at 10 am, Friday, April 17, 2020, where we will discuss various personnel matters that employers should be considering, including the requirements of these Acts, and new personnel policies, with time for Q&A.
