The American Rescue Plan Act and Paycheck Protection Program

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020, including the Paycheck Protection Program, provide financial support for small businesses and targeted sectors of the economy, along with direct cash payments to many Americans and enhanced resources for medical support.

Our deep experience in corporate financing and lending, and specific experience in advising on Small Business Administration loans, enable us to direct clients to the smartest and most strategic options, and provide advice on loan forgiveness and tax implications.

The FFCRA and Paid Leave Tax Credits

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) of 2020 mandated paid sick leave and family and medical leave, authorized enhanced unemployment compensation, placed new coverage requirements on group health plans and provided federal tax credits to help offset the costs.

Our experienced national team of Labor & Employment attorneys has studied the law in detail and can provide employers with the sophisticated guidance they need to comply with its requirements.
