The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. In response, a number of local and national health organizations have taken increased steps to reduce interactions between people as a method to slow transmission rates while employers have been highly encouraged to place distance between employees in the form of tele work and scheduling creativity. Employers are feeling the stress both logistically as well as financially.
Both the House and Senate have passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act’s Paid Leave which places significant new obligations on employers.
This webinar session will provide the most recent information regarding the new Act and answers to many of the common questions employers face in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
