Critical Employment Law Changes During COVID-19 Pandemic
Friday, April 3, 2020; 1:00-2:30 pm Eastern
The US Department of Labor issued additional guidance on standards and application of the extended paid sick and FMLA leave under the recent Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Likewise, the latest round of COVID-19 stimulus bills, Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES), is now law. The CARES Act creates both opportunities and challenges for home care providers. These changes, coupled with the state and municipal shelter in place laws with various “essential services” definitions and an anticipated fourth stimulus package with a focus on healthcare industry workers has left many with questions.
This webinar will provide you with the opportunity to get the answers to your most pressing questions such as who is a “health care provider” that can be excluded from providing paid sick leave and/or expanded family and medical leave under the FFCRA, what are the loan forgiveness, deferred payroll tax options, and other emergency relief available to home care providers and unemployment benefits available to caregivers under CARES and much more.
