As a follow up to yesterday’s webinar by Fisher Phillips, we have included a copy of the materials presented , Employer Guidance on Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Please note however, the Act is still a work in progress and many issues are pending legislative approval before enactment. So, look for future alerts.

We also had many great follow up questions from dealers and Fisher Phillips is putting together a dealership specific FAQ on COVID-19, which will be forwarded when available.

In addition, Fisher Phillips has created a very detailed informational website, which is updated daily and if not hourly that covers the majority of legal HR questions or other issues related to COVID 19. The website is easy to navigate and has clickable links to topics that cover a varied range of questions and answers. Comprehensive and Updated FAQs For Employers On The COVID-19.
