Clarity for Employers: Employer requirements under COVID-19 laws

Thursday, April 2, 2020 - 8:30am to 10:00am


Resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Colorado and federal governments have enacted a series of laws to protect employees, along with small and mid-sized businesses. 

These recently passed laws range from extending unemployment benefits to providing emergency loans to businesses.

Led by Fairfield and Woods, PC Director Michelle Magruder — and designed for dealer principals, HR directors and controllers — this 1.5-hour webinar will outline employer responsibilities under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or the Act) and its different sections, including the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act, the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Emergency Unemployment Insurance Stabilization and Access Act of 2020.

Michelle also will cover  the Coronavirus Aid and Economic Security Act (CARES), including detailed discussion on the portions of CARES designed to assist employees who have been laid off or suffered a reduction in their work schedules, along with tax credits and emergency loan provisions designed to help small- and medium-sized businesses.
