The COVID-19 pandemic and national response has been evolving over the past couple of weeks. Each day holds new information and important updates. We want to remind you that we are keeping your health and wellbeing at the forefront of our efforts to inform you of relevant COVID-19 updates that may affect you, your clients, employees, and overall business operations.
Like most other businesses, we are taking a highly proactive approach to address this crisis while providing you with the resources, relevant updates, and following the processes recommended by public health and government agencies.
Many available resources provided by local, state, federal government and public health agencies can be accessed through our dedicated COVID-19 Resource page. Please bookmark this page as we will be closely monitoring and posting public health and government agency COVID-19 updates, such as the recent Families First Coronavirus Act (H.R. 6201) .
What is H.R. 6201?
House Bill H.R. 6201 is the Congressional response to the coronavirus (i.e., SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19) outbreak. The U.S. Legislature has passed the Act, which provides for a limited period of paid sick leave and expands the Family and Medical Leave Act to provide an extended period of unpaid or partially paid leave for a public health emergency (“E-FMLA”).
In addition, we have also provided employer resources, such as Frequently Asked Questions regarding employment laws to quickly address any issues you may have experienced already amid the COVID-19 crisis. Work from Home and Workplace Compliance guides for employers to utilize.
We plan on providing extended support to our clients and together, we will endure the longevity of the evolving situation.
We are committed to open communication with our clients, employees, and partners and ask that we continue to support each other in these challenging times.
