Common Questions & Answers

What is the Paycheck Protection Program?
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created by the federal government to help small businesses like yours access forgivable government funds quickly, in an amount of up to $10,000,000 per business.
These topics are complex and potentially confusing. Please read carefully and discuss this with your Bambee HR Manager to see what makes the most sense for your business.
Do I qualify for this program?
All businesses, including non-profits, sole-proprietorships, and self-employed individuals with fewer than 500 employees qualify for this program. This means that you will likely qualify for this loan program.
What is the difference between the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL) and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)?
EIDL is a loan that covers six months of operational expenses and is administered by the Small Business Administration. Up to $10,000 may be forgivable.
PPP is a loan that covers two months of payroll and is administered by banks. If you use 75% of the loan on payroll, it is forgivable.
Does the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) apply to employees I have furloughed or laid off?
No - the FFCRA does not apply to employees who are furloughed or laid off prior to April 1, 2020. Employees who were laid off after this time could be eligible for leave between April 1, 2020 and the date they are put on furlough or laid off.
Can I be exempt from FFCRA?
Potentially. If you have less than 50 employees, you could claim an exemption if providing child care-related paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave would jeopardize the viability of your business. Other criteria may also apply.
