This year the government has presented companies with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Outside of the standard payroll requirements for the fourth quarter, there are some reimbursements under CARES and FFCRA that eligible companies should retain before year end. At Vinna Human Resources we believe in the generosity and respect. We also believe in the value of collaboration. That’s why we recommend Anfinson Thompson & Co. for all our clients who are in need of payroll assistance.
- The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides a retention credit to applicable employers that continued to employ their staff during the pandemic.
- The federal government reimburses companies who provided paid leave to employees with the coronavirus under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
As we transition to a new year with new policies and employment laws, we encourage you to give us a call with all your human resource questions. We are your resource.
