Understanding the Families First Coronavirus Response Act
10 a.m.-11 a.m. (Eastern)
The U.S. Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service, and the U.S. Department of Labor announced that small and midsize employers can begin taking advantage of two new refundable payroll tax credits, designed to immediately and reimburse them, dollar-for-dollar, for the cost of providing coronavirus-related leave to their employees. Don Lawless of Barnes & Thornburg will explain the details and answer your questions during this live webinar.
The act will help the U.S. combat and defeat COVID-19 by giving all American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide employees with paid leave, either for the employee’s own health needs or to care for family members. The legislation will enable employers to keep their workers on their payrolls, while at the same time ensuring that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus.
This webinar will also be available on demand.
