On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) became law, followed by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act on March 27, 2020. While the FFCRA and CARES Act are only the beginning of the necessary government response to COVID-19 and the resulting economic crisis, they established a series of critical protections to help working people during the pandemic. The current health and economic crisis has created an unprecedented need for attorneys willing to come forward and provide legal assistance to individuals seeking to access these new protections.
