12/29/2020 Update: New COVID-19 Stimulus Bill

Good Afternoon!

First, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Second, I have just a few quick items I wanted to get out to you while it's timely. First, here is a pretty good summary of the new COVID-19 Relief Bill. Of particular interest are the changes to the FFCRA. They’ve extended the employer benefit which reimburses you for paying someone while they are on qualifying (read here as COVID related) Extended Family Medical Leave, but has oddly removed any obligation that an employer pays it. I’ve spoken to a number of folks already who have indicated that they intend to continue paying the benefit as they will be reimbursed, but again, it now is no longer required. Pretty much everything else in it was covered in my last post.

Secondly, I’m very pleased to say that we now have a social media presence. Not me personally. Makes me ill just thinking about it. But the Chapter now has one and Sam will be in charge of relaying content to you on those platforms. Feel free to follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. The links to our social platforms can be found on the Chapter website under the contact section. Additionally, if you have any content that highlights/promotes our industry, reach out to Sam at to upload it across our platforms. As always, thanks for being a NECA member, and don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions. -Ted
