Reopening Western New York – A Four-Part Complimentary Webinar Series (Part 3)

June 25, 2020

By: Mitchell J. Banas, Jr. and Riane F. Lafferty

In the third of a four-part series, the professionals of Bond, Schoeneck & King and Freed Maxick will discuss the practical challenges being faced by employers as the reopening process continues in Western New York.

Now that our region is in the middle of Phase Three, businesses are tasked with administering and adhering to new state-required safety protocols. What potential traps await businesses in this new landscape? What risks are inherent in implementing workplace safety plans? Finally, as the rules governing forgiveness of loans under the Paycheck Protection Program continue to evolve, how can employers best repopulate the workplace to maximize loan forgiveness?
