We have had many changes in the past few weeks as a result of the global pandemic. Nelson Deegan Forster & Stikovich, PC is here to guide you through this confusing time. Their employment lawyer can answer questions regarding how to manage your employees, whether your business is "essential," or whether the CARES Act will help you. You may also have questions regarding how we are handling estate planning signings and client consultations during this time. We answer a few questions here. If you have other questions, please reach out! If we do not know the answer immediately, we will find out. As information is coming out on an almost constant basis, sometimes we need to do a little research before answering questions.

Families First Coronavirus Response Act
This Act expands existing FMLA leave, unemployment benefits, and it also provides emergency sick leave for reasons pertaining to COVID-19. These expansions and new protections apply to businesses with 500 or fewer employees. If you have specific questions regarding whether your business has to comply OR if you are an employee wondering if this leave is available to you, please contact Amy Stikovich at firstname.lastname@example.org
