As TIA continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and it’s impact on the 3PL and transportation industries, here is your Daily Update for March 31. As a reminder, you can find all the latest information, resources, guidance, and news from TIA’s COVID-19 Response Center.
Thank you to those who joined us today for TIA’s first Virtual Lunch & Learn webinar: Families First Coronavirus Response Act & Related Employment Issues. A special thank you to Margo Wolf O’Donnell with the Benesch law firm for her great presentation on new Family Medical Leave Act and Sick Leave provisions, and how they affect TIA Members.
For those who could not join us, a recording of the webinar is also available. As mentioned during the webinar, if your business has less than 500 employees you are required to adhere to these rules, unless you apply for an exemption. It is highly recommended that you send the Department of Labor’s template information sheet to your employees as soon as possible. This is a legal requirement.
Mark your calendar for our next Virtual Lunch & Learn webinar on Thursday afternoon: Is Your Incentive Compensation Plan Helping You or Hurting You Right Now? (Part I). Beth Carroll will review common freight broker compensation structures to examine how they are affected by external market economics, in ways that are not always intended.
If you have ideas or suggestions for webinar session topics, let us know.
