S&C Critical Insights – Key Employer Takeaways Under New CARES Act

March 31, 2020



In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights podcast series, Julie Jordan, co-head of S&C’s Labor & Employment group, and Jeannette Bander, partner in the Firm’s Executive Compensation group, discuss key employer takeaways for the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act provides for a significant expansion of unemployment benefits and an unprecedented forgivable loan program for small businesses that avoid certain employee reductions. The act also makes financial assistance available to other businesses that follow specific labor and employment restrictions. Julie and Jeannette discuss certain key aspects of the act, which merit careful consideration for employers going forward.
