On April 27, Partners Brooke Ehrlich and Andrew Demers presented in a webinar titled “The Law On COVID-19: The Interplay Between The FFCRA And The CARES Act.”
Brooke spoke on the recent Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which requires employers with under 500 employees to provide qualified employees with paid emergency sick leave and expands leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act for reasons related to COVID-19.
Drew provided an overview of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which makes certain business eligible for tax credits, deferred tax payments, and loans through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
The webinar provided valuable guidance in navigating through the legal requirements and understanding of the benefits offered by the FFCRA and CARES Act. The webinar was hosted by the Broward County Bar Association.
