CARES Act Includes Payroll Protection and Funds for Businesses
Thursday, April 2, 2020
Attorneys Chris Finney and Rebecca Heimlich of the Finney Law Firm will present “Significant Relief for Business Owners and Self-Employed in the COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis.” So many businessmen and women who have built the businesses for years and decades have watched their investments become imperiled as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic crisis, and in many cases the government mandates relating to it.
As a result, an unprecedented millions of Americans have been furloughed or laid off because the businesses no longer have the money to keep them employed. On Friday Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which includes the Paycheck Protection Program to provide funds to businesses and the self-employed to keep the wheels of commerce turning and allow those businesses to bring back the loyal employees that allow it to exist and grow.
This Thursday, the presenters will explain the act and how businesses owners can quickly access the funds to avoid insolvency.
