COVID-19 Legal Update

Capozzi Adler, P.C. is assisting LTC providers and small businesses with legal issues arising during the COVID-19 pandemic. To those of you in long-term care who are on the front lines caring for our country’s most vulnerable citizens:  we applaud you for your bravery and resilience during this difficult time. 

Congress is about to enact the largest economic relief effort in U.S. History, the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), with funds expected to flow quickly starting in April 2020.  State Governments are also putting in place relief programs for their citizens and businesses.  Relief will be available under these programs for businesses, self-employed individuals, employees, the unemployed, students and retirees, along with special programs and requirements for health care providers and other employers. 

Our Firm continues to provide legal services and counseling under the current public health precautions in place in Pennsylvania. We are available to assist businesses in:

  • Navigating whether the new FMLA and Paid Sick Leave requirements effective April 2, 2020 apply to them, including the special provisions relating to employees who are health care providers or first responders.
  • Applying for waivers of State limitations on operations.
  • Responding to union and employee issues related to continued operations, health and safety, under current precautions and conditions.
  • Applying for forgivable loan relief from the Small Business Administration to help sustain operations and employees, or employee retention credits under the pending $2 Trillion CARES Act, which also includes a delay in payment of employer payroll taxes.
  • Coordinating and clarifying guidance regarding resident admissions policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are able to work with our clients remotely and can arrange for on-site consultation as may be required.  If you need help with business issues to get through the current crisis, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
