The “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security” or “CARES” Act allows for an employment tax credit for businesses that pay employees while their workplace is closed due to COVID-19. To help employers understand if they qualify, tax experts from First Advantage will host an educational webinar on Thursday, April 23, dedicated to the credit.

In this session, the team from First Advantage will explain details of the legislation, which includes a refund of up to $5,000 per employee, provided the employer meets specific criteria. There is also an opportunity for employers that are furloughing employees and not paying wages but still covering health insurance benefits.
