Federal Government Signs Families First Coronavirus Response Act. PLEASE READ!

On March 18, 2020 the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was signed into law to provide relief to employees and small and midsize businesses affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The act allows most employers with less than 500 employees to take a payroll tax credit on the newly required leave that must be provided to employees affected by COVID-19.
