PA Chamber Webinar: Coronavirus – Small Business Next Steps and Best Practices
March 27, 2020
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Small businesses especially are facing huge challenges during the response to the coronavirus pandemic. Federal and state mandates indicating that many business should offer limited service or completely close make it difficult for smaller businesses to remain viable and financially solvent. What are the legal ramifications for small businesses, and what resources are available to help them through these challenges?
In response, the Pennsylvania Chamber Educational Foundation is presenting a free 1½ hour webinar as a public service to cover two important areas of information specifically to help small businesses.
First, top business attorneys Andrew Levy and Ursula Siverling of McNees Wallace & Nurick will discuss the legal ramifications facing small business with suggestions on best practices to help them stay viable. Then we have invited a top official from the U.S. Small Business Administration to discuss the resources available to help small businesses from suffering undue hardship. We will discuss:
- How the coronavirus has impacted smaller businesses
- What employers should be doing now to continue to protect their employees and customers – how do you protect your customers when the “doors” open again, what should you do if a noticeably ill customer shows up, how long do you limit your hours, and more
- Best practices small business should continue to follow even when the pandemic finally levels off
- Legal ramifications businesses must consider as they begin to get back up to speed
- How long some of the modified laws will stay in place that you must comply with – FLMA, ADA, Wage & Hour, more
- Business losses covered under insurance
- Resources and financial options out there to help small businesses
The speakers will open up the last few minutes of the webinar to answer questions from participants.
