CARES Act Resources: The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the U.S. government to respond with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the largest economic stimulus plan in history. Husch Blackwell’s COVID-19 team has reviewed the Act carefully and is developing content to help clients and others determine how best to access the available assistance. They will add new content frequently as the Act is implemented through a number of agency rulemakings over the coming weeks. Find it here: https://www.huschblackwell.com/cares-act
State-By-State Guidance: Husch Blackwell has developed this resource center to monitor and update the rapidly-emerging COVID-19 rules, orders and guidance. These range from business restrictions and gathering limitations to full-scale shelter-in-place orders. The federal government and each state approach the issue differently and have developed varying definitions for “Essential Businesses” and “Essential Employees” that draw from and elaborate upon the existing guidelines from the Department of Homeland Security. Choose from the state menu to access the latest information in the states we are tracking. For the states that have yet to develop orders, our government affairs team at Husch Blackwell Strategies can assist you with working to make sure any future orders include specific businesses. We will update this resource center daily as new information and guidance is released. Find this resource here: https://www.huschblackwell.com/state-by-state-covid-19-guidance
Littler Mendelson knows that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has a host of implications for the workplace, including health and safety, leaves of absence, wage and hour, discrimination, and travel. Although the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been publishing a steady stream of information and guidance, it is not always clear for employers how to translate that information into compliant and appropriate practices. Littler has developed a task force to help keep employers informed. You can find resources for employers on our website at: https://www.littler.com/coronavirus.
