Part Two

The coronavirus pandemic continues to present a host of challenges for employers, and certain issues have greatly and uniquely impacted owner-managed and closely-held businesses. Companies have found themselves in unchartered territory relating to financing and capitalization issues, qualification for various government loan programs available through the Small Business Administration (SBA), as well as daily business operational and corporate governance matters. This webinar is the second in a series of three and will explore high-level strategic decisions that key executives are dealing with regarding operational matters. The topics include:

  • Contracts – Force majeure, inability to perform, negotiations and dispute resolution
  • Business Interruption and other Insurance Related Matters
  • Human Resource Matters - How to navigate positive or presumptive positive cases and how to respond; furloughs and layoffs; labor shortages; enforcing shelter in place and re-opening orders; legal forms/notices; notice requirements, recordkeeping; worksite safety protocols – manuals, notice requirements, tax credits and paid leave
  • Reopening Issues - Effect of essential business designation; workforce travel letters and rules as states reopen; readiness plans; compliance with state/ and federal laws

Be sure to join us for the webinar that will follow. The third webinar will feature merger and acquisition considerations involved with acquiring or selling businesses during a pandemic. Invitation for this webinar will follow.
