As you may know, The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to advance the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201), which is also supported by the President. This legislation is now before the U.S. Senate and we need you to weigh in on this bill to help get changes made to it as things are moving. Its expected the Senate will vote on this measure today.
The legislation seeks to provide federal support to allow employers to offer paid leave to employees suffering from Coronavirus, but it unfortunately requires that small businesses pay for it and wait to be reimbursed from the government as it provides payroll tax credits. This creates challenges for many hospitality related businesses that are struggling to maintain cashflow.
So, please contact your Senator to ask them to fix the coronavirus relief bill and immediately provide additional assistance and relief to hospitality related businesses.
