Coronavirus Updates

A Private News Bulletin from Company Leaders

Update #2

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 sbenezra@weathergardwindows.com, Elsy ebaron@weathergardwindows.com or Toby benezra2@aol.com.

Sincerely,
Shlome Benezra

Update #1: Here’s where we’re at right now.

Valued WeatherGard Team Member,

We’re writing to give you some clarity on where things are right now, and what we’re doing as a company. Currently, we’re focused 100% on getting our company and our team through this difficult time. The next several weeks will be difficult, but we are confident that in the medium and longer term, that WeatherGard will be okay, and that your job will still be here.

Our goal is to resume work and be operational as quickly as possible. We understand the anxiety that comes with being out of work, and we will do everything in our power to help our team members obtain any benefits that are or will become available from the State or Federal government. As we learn and process this information, we will make it available here for you.

We are also trying to determine how to keep people working as much as possible during the stay-at-home order, and we are already working on several projects to try to keep the business operating under these difficult circumstances, as well as projects to help us all to hit the ground running the moment the situation improves, to make up for all this lost time.

A critical component during this downtime will be communication. It is imperative that you provide us with your email, phone number(s) and emergency contact so we can reach you with important information. Please do that now.

If you haven’t already, 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.

Please check this website on a regular basis as we will be updating it with the most current information as we get it.

Stay safe,
Shlome Benezra
