Consult Time for Business Strategy - Sign up Information 
      There are so many questions to be answered this week and so much pressure on employers/business owners. To organize ourselves, at K&K, we are scheduling block consult time in advance so we can devote the time needed to answer any and all of your questions, which may encompass some of the below - 

​Do I have to pay my employees?
What benefits are available for my employees?
Can I screen customers before we service them?
Can I screen staff?
How do I close temporarily? 
Will I have to pay my rent?
Will my insurance cover this? 
What about government stimulus? 
       We are also available to help draft letters to customers, staff, third parties. You can schedule time for by emailing Stacy Spector, Esq at or call Stacy at 516 747 6700 x 304. . Stacy will set up a time for you and you can send materials you are thinking of working with in advance to expedite, or we can help craft from scratch.

    A thought for your newsletter to pass along to other alarm companies... this past week, 3 of my employees came Into close contact with a counter person from a local equipment distributor we buy from. The counter person ended up going to the hospital for what appeared like flu-like symptoms a day later. The counter person was quarantined for 8 hours in the hospital and then sent home for a week along with another employee from the distributor of alarm equipment as it takes 3 days to get results back for CoVid19. 
    We were on pins and needles for a day. Do I have to shut down my entire company? Per your previous column, do I have to pay them? Can I put off all installations and service calls for 2 weeks? Shutting down the company for 2 weeks... just think of that...
   Starting tomorrow, my service techs will not report to the company and have interaction with other techs to lessen the possibility of exposure across the company, service Dept will continue taking care of everyone with business as usual (assuming they don’t shut down the entire country...). If I lose any service technicians to sickness and have to send techs home I’ll pull from the installation department and out off new installs and make sure my paying customers are taken care of. Office staff can always work from home. 
    The results came back negative for the infectious disease and we return to work with the plan above in place starting tomorrow. 
    My cute little wife says I think too much... what are your thoughts? 
Yours for better security,
Steve Sopkin, President
