View Presentation

We are in the midst of some turbulent, unprecedented times but SIG is here to help you through it. As you deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19), another big change is on the horizon. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the “Act”) is making its way through Congress, and it is widely expected that the Senate will vote on the Act this week.

Join SIGU and Doug Desmarais of Smith & Downey to discuss the “Act” and review available strategic options for employers. Doug will also be highlighting the multiple laws impacted by COVID-19 and what employers should be considering from a labor and employment perspective as they work to keep employees safe and minimize business disruption.
