SALT LAKE CITY — As the pandemic upends the economy, small business owners and employers may find themselves struggling to keep up with coronavirus-related legislation affecting their companies.
A Salt Lake City-based law firm is hoping to ease that burden by offering critical information from the new legislation through a new site to help employers make informed, strategic decisions about their business and future.
The website, COVID-19 Resource Center, created by the law firm Parsons Behle & Latimer, provides employers with summarized overviews of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the Coronavirus Relief and Economic Act, as well as other loan and relief programs for small businesses.
Shawn Ferrin, a firm shareholder, said it’s important to ensure that clients have a “reliable source of information to make the transition through these times a little easier.”
From topics surrounding ADA compliance during a pandemic to testing employees for the virus, visitors of the site will be able to access articles written by attorneys who specialize in tax, labor, banking, real estate and health care laws.
“Fortunately, legislation to support and sustain businesses is being produced at an incredible rate,” according to a company news release. “For business owners and employers struggling to stay on top of day-to-day issues, finding the time to gain an in-depth understanding of the new legislation and how it can benefit — or penalize them — can be overwhelming.”
