The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to new legislation that affects employees and employers, and Hull Barrett PC is here to help you navigate all the new laws. Employers have come to us with many questions, and we advise the best course of action according to the law for your particular needs.
Every scenario is different. We’ve had many employers ask what they should do if an employee tests positive for COVID-19 or how to manage employees who refuse to work because they are concerned about exposure. The law can give many options for those scenarios, and it easily can get confusing. We help you interpret the law and find the right answers for your needs.
Lately, we’ve helped local businesses in several ways. Here are just a few examples:
- The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires certain employers to provide paid leave to their employees under certain circumstances related to the virus. We’ve spent a lot of time advising our clients how to comply with that law.
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has been amended to provide job protection to employees who are out of work for various reasons related to the virus. Hull Barrett has been helping our clients comply with the new law.
- We are helping businesses determine whether they qualify for loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
- We advise businesses that do qualify for PPP understand how those funds can be used and the effect of layoffs and terminations on PPP loans.
