States and municipalities across the United States are continuing to issue stay at home mandates, non-essential business closures or restrictions, and orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting employers. Federal government contractors face additional challenges with agency, contract or site-specific closures and restrictions impacting their ability to continue work as usual. At the same time Congress is enacting laws expanding paid and unpaid leave for certain workers, directing federal agencies to consider reimbursement of paid leave for certain government contractors, and providing additional unemployment benefits, loans and tax incentives.

Join us as Jackson Lewis, Smith Pachter McWhorter, and BDO host a webinar for federal contractors aimed at summarizing these important issues.
