As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a profound economic impact nationwide, many physicians are facing important questions related to their practices and their roles as small business employers. In recent weeks, new laws have been quickly enacted at the federal, state, county and city level that have expanded unemployment benefits, sick leave provisions, and family medical leave laws to help both employers and employees affected by this public health crisis.
To help physicians understand the rapidly evolving personnel and other employment-related issues during the COVID-19 public health emergency, the California Medical Association has published the CMA COVID-19 Toolkit for Physician Employers. This resource is free to all and available on CMA’s COVID-19 resource page, cmadocs.org/covid-19.
