Legislative Updates & Working in the New Normal

(3.00 RCHs)


In the first part of the session we will provide a legislative update on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES). FFCRA required small employers to provide employees with sick pay to care for themselves or others, as well as extended FMLA to care for children at home. The CARES Act provided additional resources for businesses through the Payroll Protection Program or a work retention tax credit. The requirements, credits and revised 941 tax form will be reviewed. For the remainder of the session we will discuss what the new normal looks like. Discussions on recruiting with 20% unemployment vs. 3.5% unemployment, how to manage the workforce in the work from home environment and why employee self-service is more important than ever.
