We understand that everyone is moving through various stages of comprehension, concern and fear about the Covid-19 Virus. As your trusted business advisors we want to regularly provide you with valuable information, which is easily accessible and helpful in navigating these unprecedented times we are facing.

There is a lot of information circulating about how to protect yourselves and your families from contracting Covid-19. In addition, there is a wealth of information about keeping your business, and more importantly your employees, as financially sound as possible. At the end of the crisis, however long that may be, we all want to return to full-employment with the employees who are at the core of our work families.

For today’s valuable information source we want to refer you to the California Employment Development Department. On their site you will find a fact sheet which advises on when employees may file for disability, paid family leave and unemployment benefits during this crisis.

One item to pay special attention to is the Unemployment Benefits available for “partial unemployment.” If work slowdown forces you to reduce employees to less than their regularly schedule 40 hours per week, the EDD will fill in the gap with partial unemployment benefits.

Be on the lookout tomorrow for our letter regarding SBA Disaster Loans! In the near future, we will be addressing other important issues such as remote work process and procedures, etc. If there are other topics you would like us to address, please email [email protected].
