Course Description:

This course is worth 1 CE. Free for DOCS Members and Trial Members. See below for details. 

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires certain employers to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.

Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees may qualify for exemption from the requirement to provide leave due to school closings or child care unavailability if the leave requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern.

But on August 8th, there was a federal court case that calls into question this exemption for dental offices.

During this course, Paul Edwards, CEO of CEDR HR Solutions, discusses the FFCRA and your most pressing HR-related child care concerns.

I am a business leader and founder with a career spanning over 25 years. Throughout my career, I have gained experience solving HR issues that impact dental & medical practice owners and managers. I'm inspired by the idea that “better workplaces make better lives”, and passionate about helping clients successfully handle employee issues and safely navigate the complex and ever-changing employment law landscape. My experiences have led me to my current role as CEO and Co-Founder of CEDR Solutions.

At CEDR HR Solutions we provide custom, legally compliant employee handbooks, human resources support, and team management software for the dental, medical, and wellness industries. Your business is as unique as you are, and the policies you implement should be a reflection of that uniqueness.
