Valued WeatherGard Team Member,
I pray that everyone is safe and healthy and remains that way. Last night, the Senate reached an agreement for a massive stimulus package to assist families and businesses affected by the COVID-19 virus. Details of this bill have not yet been released, and it has yet to be voted on. Please note, whatever the final bill is, we will do our best to explain how it affects WeatherGard and its team members. Also note that this is in addition to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which was passed by Congress last week and will be effective on April 2nd, 2020.
Paychecks (both live checks and direct deposit) are being processed for this week Friday, March 27, 2020, as normal, including all the typical deductions you usually have. As you know, the wages for this Friday are based on work for last week, while we were still open.
With respect to future weeks, emails will go out tomorrow, based on department, detailing how we will proceed in the medium and long term. This will include some detail as to how the Families First Coronavirus Response Act will affect you, as well as any detail we can determine from the legislation they are working to finalize today, if possible. If you haven’t already provided us with your email, phone number(s) and emergency contact so we can reach you with important information, please do that now.
Also, please download the Paylocity app (iOS or Android) or go to paylocity.com and register. This will provide you access to your pay and tax documents, as well as provide us with another way to communicate with you. Registration instructions are available here: PDF link. Please take note of our company number: 104141. You will need this for registration.
Finally, if you have a smart phone, we recommend that everyone download the Zoom app (iOS or Android), as we will be setting up optional department meetings in the coming days to check in with everyone and be able to answer questions. In the meanwhile, if you have immediate questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com, Elsy firstname.lastname@example.org or Toby email@example.com.
