What Employers Need to Know About the Cares Act and FFCRA

When: Available On Demand

Duration: 50 minutes + Q&A

With major legislation already passed — and more likely to come — organizations can act now to best position themselves for continued operation during a global pandemic while also ensuring compliance. On March 27, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into federal law. Among the many provisions included, employers now may elect to delay payment of their federal payroll taxes, and delay the deposit and payment of their Social Security taxes, effective immediately, through Dec. 31, 2020.

A week earlier, on March 18, Congress approved the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Going into effect April 1, the FFCRA requires American businesses with fewer than 500 employees to provide COVID-19-impacted employees with paid leave, either for the worker’s own health needs or to care for others.​

With the CARES Act and the FFCRA both in place, what can your organization do today to ensure your workplace remains compliant?

In this webinar with AJ Grifffin, Paycom’s Director of Government and Community Affairs, and Brian McManus and Robin Struve, Partners at Latham & Watkins LLP, we will take an in-depth look at:

  • how the new FFCRA and CARES Act may impact your business
  • which businesses and employees may qualify for additional paid sick leave
  • qualifications pertaining to Social Security tax credits and deferrals
  • the ways in which the FFCRA expands Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) eligibility and requirements
  • how the CARES Act immediately changes the way organizations can manage their payroll taxes
  • how technology can help keep your organization compliant and give you the tools you need to successfully navigate these changes
