Received COVID-19 Funding? How to Mitigate and Respond to Enforcement Risks and Government Actions

The global pandemic has caused many businesses to apply for grants and/or loans or accept and retain federal funds under the CARES Act and other federally funded relief programs. We expect civil and criminal investigations related to these COVID-19 stimulus programs to increase considerably in the coming months and years. Mintz’s COVID-19 Compliance & Enforcement Defense Task Force will review how to avoid risk and how to address enforcement when it arises.

Topics will include:

  • The benefits of ongoing review of compliance with terms and conditions, attestation statements, and evolving agency guidance

  • Avoiding risk in deploying, tracking, and managing funds

  • Identifying and managing employee concerns or complaints

  • An overview of enforcement mechanisms and enforcement actions taken to date

  • Predictions regarding future enforcement activity, including whether and how enforcement may look different, depending on the outcome of the November 2020 election

  • What to do if your company is subject to a government inquiry
