March 18, 2020- Coronavirus- Emergency Programs/ Financing/ Work
Sharing / Family Leave/ Payroll Tax Extension  
Attn Chamber Members,

We are here working to keep you as up to date as possible and want to brief you on available resources.
 
Currently the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation
(LAEDC) are partnering with our Federal, State, and Los Angeles County
officials to bring any business affected by any slowdown or shutdown
with a variety of emergency economic programs (e.g. financing, work-sharing, paid family leave, payroll tax extensions, etc.) in an effort to help tide
businesses over during this coronavirus crisis.  Things are very fluid and new programs are being announced by our government (Federal and
State) each day to help businesses.  You can check out the link to see
updates on programs at https://laedc.org/coronavirus/ .
 
Attached are programs available now or soon to be announced to help
businesses.  In the event that you may have to lay people off, there is a Los
Angeles County Rapid Response program that can assist laid-off or soon
to be laid-off employees with access to unemployment insurance and other programs that are available.  We advise businesses to check into the
Work Sharing program offered through the California Employment Development Department (EDD) first before reducing hours or laying off any
employees as there is State funding to offset business work reduction and avert layoffs.
