How To on Virtual Layoffs

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 23, 2020
In just a few weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has transformed where, when, how, and with whom we work. It’s also radically changing how our employment ends. Gone are the face-to-face layoff termination meetings and the person-to-person handoffs of final checks. Now, companies are forced to conduct furloughs and reductions in force using only virtual tools.

Legal Alert: Employer FAQs On Paycheck Protection Program Loans

Posted By Administration, Friday, April 10, 2020
Updated: Friday, April 17, 2020

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides much-needed economic relief to businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. However, this much-needed relief comes with great confusion, particularly for small businesses aiming to take advantage of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). While the Small Business Administration (SBA) has revised its sample PPP loan application, issued Interim Final Rules, Supplemental Interim Final Rules (which largely addressed the SBA’s complicated Affiliation Rules), and FAQs for borrowers, employers still may have many questions.

 

What do small businesses need to know if they are still unsure about the process? What if a small business already applied for a PPP loan under old SBA guidance? 

Fisher Phillips’ SBA Loan team answers the most commonly asked questions.

What are the key issues employers need to know about?

Time for a Virtual Happy Hour!

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 9, 2020

The COVID-19 outbreak is reshaping all aspects of work, including the time-honored tradition of the afterwork happy hour. Employees working remotely—and sometimes their employers and professional resource groups—have gotten creative in adapting to the restrictions on gathering in bars and restaurants by moving happy hour meetups to a virtual format, using video-communication technology. Virtual cocktail parties and happy hours are popping up on Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facebook Live and FaceTime as socially-distanced workforces get increasingly antsy with each passing day.
