Letter from our President
We are working hard and are available to our members; to provide guidance and best practice advice from our HR Hotline, Payroll, Safety and Benefits during this Corona Virus pandemic. Because of the inundation of information, we have created a resource center with some of the most important information and guidance.
To read a summary of the new law and discover more resources, please visit https://www.associatedemployers.org/2020/03/covid-19-resource-center/
The new law, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) has allowed some employers to keep their employees. Unfortunately, it is reported that the Emergency EIDC Grants and Paycheck Protection Program (Immediate Loans with 100% loan forgiveness) has run out of funding. Call your congressman and ask for more if you are a business still seeking these funds. Other options still include Expanded Unemployment, Social Security Tax Credits and more.
Our HR Hotline is available for members at 406-248-6178. The hotline has been ringing off the wall, however our team is available if you need more resources or want to talk through HR, benefits and/or payroll strategy … we are here to help.
These are trying times and we are working diligently to help our AE members. We will continue to update our website link above with valuable information.
Thank you and Stay Healthy!
Greg Roadifer, MBA, SPHR
President, Associated Employers
