Join Keith A. Ashmus, past NSBA Chair and Retired Partner at Frantz Ward LLP as he explores the FFCRA and its implications.
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) provides two resources of paid leave for employees in response to COVID-19. The act also assists employers with less than 500 employees with the recoupment of the costs of that paid leave via payroll tax reimbursement. Join past NSBA Chair, Keith A. Ashmus, as he shares insight around key FFCRA discussion topics such as:
- Layoffs and Furlough
- Paid Time Off and Sick Leave
- Emergency Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Medical Benefits
- Unemployment Compensation and Reduced Hours
