Butzel Long hosts free webinar on March 25 – An Employer’s Guide to the New Families First Coronavirus Response Act
DETROIT, Mich. – The Families First Coronavirus Response Act will help many American families dealing with the impact by providing increased funding for food, Medicaid, unemployment assistance, and coverage for testing. However, it also significantly impacts small and medium businesses through the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLA) and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA), requiring certain employers to front the costs of paid leave to employees affected by coronavirus in various ways.
Attorneys from Butzel Long law firm’s Labor and Employment Group are hosting a free informational webinar from 9-10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
