Kirkos explained, “This week (4/15) after my brief update, I will introduce Counsel Keith Krauss and Associate Young-Ji Park of Genova Burns LLC to discuss the current availability of funding programs from the NJEDA and two of the loan programs administered by the SBA pursuant to the CARES Act. After this segment, Partner Margaret O’Rourke Wood of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC will cover the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act and highlight what businesses need to know about paid family leave and state and federal laws.” Beginning on Wednesday, 4/22 the sessions will be held during lunch (virtual attendees will supply their own lunches).
