Over the last two weeks we’ve published a five-part series on how to navigate various virus aid programs—from how to minimize the risk of virus leave litigation to how to avoid Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness pitfalls.

Each installment brings you up to speed on the most recent news on a particular issue, offers viewpoints and analysis from lawyers and tax practitioners, and provides you with a list of fast answers, tools, clients letters, forms, and on-demand webinars to help you get to the heart of what you need to know quickly.

Here’s How to Catch Up on What You’ve Missed

In Part 1 of this series, What You Need to Know to Avoid PPP Loan Forgiveness Pitfalls, we looked at recent guidance from the Small Business Administration on PPP loans and what businesses need to consider even if they aren’t ready yet to apply for forgiveness.

And in Part 2, Your Business’s Questions on Covid Retirement Changes Answered, we talked to advisers about their clients’ decisions around the CARES Act’s changes to 401(k) plans.

Part 3, How Banks and Businesses Can Minimize PPP Litigation Risks, broke down what businesses need to know, and then we turned to a list of information useful for lenders. Both sections include views from the experts and Practical Guidance from Bloomberg Law.

In Part 4, Avoiding Coronavirus Leave Litigation, Accessing Its Tax Perks, we looked at the litigation risk employers could face if they get it wrong. In addition to viewpoints from experts, we have a long list of fast answers and tools to help you find answers, as well as a flow chart to help navigate that first important question: Who must provide FFCRA leave?

In Part 5, What Businesses Should Know About Election-Year Stimulus Strategy, we talk with Henrietta Treyz of Veda Partners, known for her ability to clearly distill the happenings on Capitol Hill, about her expectations between now and January. We look at the path to another stimulus package, a forecaast to avoid a government shutdown, and what should companies expect if Joe Biden wins the presidency.
