About the webinar:

Wicks will cover the most recent regulations, new laws and guidance issued by the government in response to COVID-19. Participants can ask questions about furloughs, layoffs and other operational issues they face during this crisis. Wicks will provide the latest developments on Emergency COVID-19 Sick Leave and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The webinar includes insights on other impacts on business operations and employee management resulting from the pandemic.

“I am monitoring all of the changes as the week progresses and incorporating them into the webinar,” said Wicks.  “Because the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) continues to be an area with a lot of questions, the first half of the webinar focuses on that. I’m building the common questions that I’m receiving into the discussion.  During the second half, we pivot to the other areas where new regulations or guidance have been issued and take questions as we go.”
