A Closer Look: What’s inside the new relief programs for employers and employees
Since last week’s video alert for employers, “Practical workplace implications of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act,” yet another COVID-related law was passed in Congress and signed by President Trump. Referred to as “Phase 3” of Congress’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is intended to provide $2 trillion in relief to individuals and businesses that are impacted by the coronavirus public health emergency.
In this latest video alert, McAfee & Taft employment lawyers Paul Ross, Natalie Ramsey and Josh Solberg discuss potentially game-changing opportunities for relief through the CARES Act, including the Paycheck Protection Program. They also explore recently updated Department of Labor guidance about employer obligations to provide paid sick leave and emergency FMLA leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
