Dear LAZ Family Members,
I hope this email finds everyone healthy and safe. Recognizing we are all experiencing the most difficult health and financial crisis of our lives; on behalf of myself, Jeff Karp, Michael Harth, and Mike Kuziak, our hearts go out to you and your loved ones.
With all the challenges that we have faced these past few weeks, I am excited to share some very positive news! Since this crisis started unfolding a week and a half ago, I have been working tirelessly on behalf of LAZ and the entire parking industry to ensure that our temporarily furloughed employees will be made whole with close to 100% of their pay as possible.
The Senate Cares Act Bill that was voted on and approved just minutes ago accomplishes that goal!
We can all breathe a bit more easily now knowing that our valued LAZ Family members who have been furloughed will have their State Unemployment benefits increased significantly by a supplemental plan funded by our Federal Government. We have been fighting around the clock for our employees in order to achieve this wonderful outcome. All of our Temporary Furloughed Employees will now be able to receive close to 100% of their previous pay for up to 4 months!
Our executive leadership and regional management teams will continue to work around the clock to ensure the health and safety of our employees and the future success of our company.
Our NEVER EVER GIVE UP LAZ spirit and culture makes us uniquely qualified to meet these challenges, and I know in the coming weeks and months we will come out of this stronger and more united than ever.
I want to personally thank each and every LAZ family member for their courage and support during these most trying times. We have the most amazing team of people in the world and I am just so thankful and proud of each and every one of you!
With love and appreciation,
