 Making Sense of the Employee Retention Tax Credit

The US House of Representatives passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on (IIJA) November 5, 2021, thus ending the Employee Retention Tax credit as of September 30, 2021. Businesses may not claim the credit after Q3 of 2021.
It is important to note that if your business has experienced a partial or full shutdown due to disruptions in the supply chain, you may qualify for the ERTC in any eligible quarter. If your business did not receive supplies critical to keep the business running, this may fall under the full or partial suspension of operations provision in the ERTC.

Age Discrimination in the Workplace

 Dworken & Bernstein Full Service Law Firm
  According to a recent article in the New York Times, older employees, even those of retirement age, are staying in the workforce longer.  Some are working longer out of necessity while others remain simply because of increased longevity.  Whatever the cause for the trend, it is important to understand the laws that are in place to protect this older generation of workers.  
    The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination against employees who are age forty (40) or older.  This laws provides no protection to workers under the age of forty (40).  Under the ADEA, an employer may not discriminate in any aspect of employment including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotion, layoff, training, fringe benefits or any other term or condition of employment.  Additionally, it is unlawful to harass an employee on the basis of his or her age.  While an occasional comment about a person’s age will not rise to the level of harassment, severe and pervasive comments may be enough to create a hostile work environment.
