APA Creates Webpage Dedicated to COVID-19 Coverage

As federal, state, and local government agencies respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), they are working to provide guidance for employers and employees. To help keep you informed of the latest information, APA has created a new Compliance Hot Topic webpage dedicated to providing information on COVID-19

The Hot Topic webpage contains links to APA resources, education links, and government agency websites. Many federal agencies have created their own websites to provide information and guidance about COVID-19. The Hot Topic webpage provides links to these government agency websites along with direct links to items of particular interest to payroll professionals.

As more information becomes available, the Hot Topic webpage will be updated with APA News articles and in-depth analysis of new legislative and regulatory requirements from Payroll Currently. The webpage also has a link to APA’s Resource Library, which has links to state websites for child support, labor, new hire reporting, unclaimed property, unemployment insurance, withholding tax, and workers’ compensation.

Education Available

The Education Links will include details about APA educational programs related to COVID-19 as they are finalized. APA’s Virtual Capital Summit, April 22-24, will include a session about processing pay in a pandemic and many sessions will touch on the payroll implications of COVID-19. APA is also developing a COVID-19 webinar to answer your payroll questions.
