Covid-19 Guidelines for Denturist's
HERE is a link to a recent webinar from NFIB that I have listened to twice now. I think this is the best summary of all of the bills that have passed at the federal level and the employer requirements/assistance in those. It is long but well worth going through it. It particularly gets into questions and details about the various loans, whether you can apply for both types of small business assistance loans (you can — but there are caveats), employer notice requirements, and paid family leave and paid sick leave at the federal level. NFIB’s general corona virus tab at the top of their page www.NFIB.com contains a lot of good information that has been digested quite well.
Important Things to Note:
- Employer Notice Requirements: Beginning April 1 and expiring December 31, 2020, all employers are required to post, and keep posted, in conspicuous places on the premises of the employer where notices to employees are customarily posted, the notice approved by the Secretary of Labor. Any employees working from home or remotely must be emailed this notice. HERE is the link to the notice.
- Apply Quickly for the Pay Check Protection Program: Starting this Friday, April 3, 2020, small businesses and sole proprietors can apply for a loan through the Paycheck Protection Program. The Department of the Treasury is advising small businesses “to apply as quickly as you can because there is a funding cap.” More Information Here
Second, HERE is a link to ALL information for businesses and workers in Washington State. Our Governor has been compiling this information in one place to make it easier to find for our state’s businesses. I URGE EVERYONE TO TAKE A LOOK AT WWW.CORONAVIRUS.WA.GOV to see all of the information that has been gathered there.
Finally, LINKED HERE s information directly from our state Employment Security Department to help you guide employees who want to collect UI and how the federal act works with the state. There are some good FAQs on this page that will help.
WE ARE DENTURISTS
In November of 1994, the People of the State of Washington passed Initiative 607, allowing persons other than dentists to manufacture and sell dentures to the public. This new professional would be known as a Denturist.
