When a state of emergency is announced, employee and employer lives are immediately impacted. As a leading generator of paystubs online, W-2 statements, and 1099-MISC forms, ThePayStubs offers answers to employer and employee questions about the state of emergency work laws.


Santa Fe, CA, June 22, 2020 –  “A global health crisis and the state of emergency has affected every aspect of our lives, especially our work processes. We wanted to help our 300,000+ clients and others understand how the state of emergency impacts their businesses,” explains ThePayStubs spokesperson, Justin Brown. 

President Trump declared a federal state of emergency on March 13, 2020. A state of emergency allows the government to take certain actions they wouldn’t normally be able to. A set of financial and emergency provisions kicked in such as the CARES Act, which sought to provide direct economic assistance for American workers and small businesses. “We saw a lot of our clients take advantage of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) as part of this Act. It was great to see how the digital pay stubs they had on our platform sped up the application process for them,” adds Brown. 

As the federal government mobilized, the state governors also had the option to declare a state of emergency for their state. Changes at the state level are most important for employers and employees to understand. ThePayStubs team explains this in their comprehensive guide, along with answers to other pertinent questions, such as:

  • Can an employer accept volunteer workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)?
  • What are employer obligations to employees under quarantine?
  • How can I minimize the impact to my business payment processes?
  • What rights do you, as an employee, have to workplace benefits during a state of emergency?

“We hope the guide will help all workers minimize the negative impact on their business and see opportunities for the future of work. I must say that those clients who prioritized digitizing their processes prior to the state of emergency had an advantage in meeting the requirements of remote work. A state of emergency notwithstanding, going digital is the future and our hassle-free software can make the transition easy,” assures Brown.
