COVID-19 Employer Q&As

March 2020


As you are aware, there are many open questions, rumors and misinformation regarding COVID-19. Our team at North Risk Partners is working hard to provide you with as much concrete and reliable information as possible in a timely fashion. We are continuing to fully operate as an essential and critical business while following all CDC guidelines. Synergy Human Resources, our partner for HR and legal services, is also essential and critical, and is also working hard to help North Risk Partners business clients through this challenging time.

Our format as usual will be PowerPoint slides, which will include all the Q&As we have accumulated to date, with at least 30 minutes reserved for questions. In this 90-minute webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • Families First Coronavirus Response Act
  • Information from the DOL
  • Current Shelter in Place/Stay at Home orders for Wisconsin and Minnesota and any others issued up to Monday morning in North Risk’s core six-state region, including Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota
  • Unemployment orders and other related information
  • CDC updates
  • Notices to employees
  • Layoffs, furloughs, and reduction of hours
  • Terminations unrelated to COVID-19
  • Reimbursements, tax credits for mandated COVID-19 employee benefits
