EPCBA’s First CLE Webinar! This First One is FREE!

 COVID-19: What Employers Should Know

March 25th 12 – 1PM

CLE: 1 General (pending)

Moderator: Glenn H. Schlabs

Presenters:  Ian Kalmanowitz, Gary Kramer, and Michael Kuhn

Topics will include:

  • The businesses impacted by Colorado’s “state of emergency”
  • The Colorado Health Emergency Leave with Pay (“Colorado HELP”) Rules issued by the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment
  • Unemployment insurance benefits that are available to employees of businesses impacted by COVID-19
  • New federal legislation to address COVID-19 issues: H.R.6201- “Families First Coronavirus Response Act” and S._____- “Providing Americans Insured Days of Leave Act of 2020” (the Senate Bill doesn’t have a number yet) [I expect that by Wednesday some form of this legislation will have passed, or the crowds will be storming the Bastille]
  • Coronavirus, employees, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and medical privacy issues.

This webinar will be hosted on Zoom and a link will be sent out prior to the webinar. Attendees can use the chat function to ask questions during the presentation or ask questions live during Q&A. It’s free to download.
