In this webinar we will discuss unemployment benefits in The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES); new paid sick leave and expanded federal Family and Medical Leave Act in the Families First Corona Virus Response Act (FFCRA), including coverage of smaller employers; and wage and hour and other laws implicated in employer decisions to furlough, reduce hours or reduce pay for employees.
